Gogo, a leading aircraft communications service provider, has just announced having agreed to a technical services agreement (TSA) to evaluate the company’s suite of technology solutions for Boeing’s commercial aircraft.
According to the press, the agreement is for the purpose of initiating the evaluation process for potential commercial fleet installation. Michael Small, Gogo’s president and CEO, had this to say about the deal:
“As Gogo continues to retro-fit aircraft with its various connectivity solutions, it’s crucial to work towards line-fit of these solutions for all new orders so each aircraft comes off the line with Gogo connectivity already installed and ready for service from day one.”
Gogo already has an agreement in place with Boeing for line-fit provisions for its ATG-4 technologies on 737NG aircraft. The provisioning is crucial for the two companies to achieve line-fit capabilities for the future, according to the news.
“By taking care of some of the aircraft modification needs at the manufacturing level, this provisioning agreement will make the installation process much smoother after an airline takes delivery of the new aircraft,” added Small.
Gogo is the global leader of in-flight connectivity and wireless in-flight digital entertainment solutions. Using Gogo’s exclusive products and services, passengers with Wi-Fi enabled devices can get online on more than 2,000 Gogo equipped commercial aircraft. In-flight connectivity partners include Aeromexico, American Airlines, Air Canada, AirTran Airways, Alaska Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Japan Airlines, United Airlines, US Airways and Virgin America. In-flight entertainment partners include Aeromexico, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Japan Airlines, Scoot and US Airways. In addition to its commercial airline business, Gogo has more than 6,300 business aircraft outfitted with its communications services.
