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."
