Gogo Partners With Apigee to Build a Platform for Unique In-Flight Experiences 
Airline Partners and Digital Companies Can Now Leverage Gogo APIs to
Create New Digital Experiences 
SAN JOSE, CA and ITASCA, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 05/20/14 -- 
Apigee(R), developer of the leading platform for digital
acceleration, and Gogo (NASDAQ: GOGO), a leading communications
service provider to the global aviation industry, have partnered to
deliver a platform for developing new apps and in-flight experiences.
With the Apigee-powered Gogo Platform, airline partners and digital
app companies can easily leverage Gogo APIs to build innovative new
apps for passengers and crew. 
"Gogo is committed to using our in-flight platform to create new and
engaging experiences for flying on Gogo equipped aircraft, whether
that's for passengers or crew" said Ash ElDifrawi, Gogo's chief
commercial officer. "Apigee is the leader in API technology, and we
believe that this partnership will open new doors and allow us to
effectively work with partners to quickly deliver innovative and
engaging apps to airline customers." 
The Gogo Platform is open to registered partners and provides access
to a custom developer portal powered by Apigee, where users can
access APIs such as gogoFlightInfo, gogoAuthCustomer, and
gogoPurchase. Gogo APIs have already been leveraged by partners to
deliver unique app experiences. For example, a leading airline has
leveraged the Gogo APIs to create an app that encourages networking
among business travelers in the air, and a location-sharing company
has developed an app that enables travelers to allow family and
friends to track their planes from the ground for accurate arrival
times. With the Apigee-powered Gogo Platform, partners can seamlessly
access Gogo's purpose-built APIs to deliver mobile apps that enhance
travel. 
"A healthy developer community and a diverse partner ecosystem is a
sign of a thriving enterprise and a leading indicator of digital
success," said Ed Anuff, Apigee vice president of product strategy.
"Gogo has turned to Apigee to help build a platform that delivers the
power and flexibility to enable third-party app development at scale,
for both mobile and operational applications. We believe Gogo is
redefining the in-flight experience and look forward to continuing to
work with them to accelerate the execution of their vision." 
Gogo's platform is supported by the Apigee Edge API platform. With
Apigee Edge, enterprises can quickly build end-to-end mobile and
digital initiatives using APIs, apps and data. Built from the ground
