Gogo to partner with Air Canada on Expanding In-Flight Connectivity to its International Fleet

CHICAGO, March 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Gogo Inc. (NASDAQ: GOGO), the global leader in providing broadband connectivity solutions and wireless in-flight entertainment to the aviation industry, announced today that it has expanded its connectivity partnership with Air Canada to include its international fleet, including the Boeing 787.

Air Canada is the only Canadian carrier offering customers in-flight Wi-Fi connectivity across its entire fleet of narrow-body aircraft in North America. Under the new agreement, Gogo's 2Ku connectivity technology will be installed on Air Canada's wide-body international aircraft, starting with the Boeing 777 this fall.

"We are excited about extending our relationship with Air Canada to bring our 2Ku technology to its international fleet," said Gogo's president and CEO, Michael Small. "The performance of Gogo's 2Ku technology is unmatched in global aviation today and is built on the concept of an open system with the ability to leverage dozens of Ku-band satellites in orbit. We've also built it to leverage any of the new Ku-band LEO satellite constellations coming on line in the future.  This system design will enable Air Canada to continue to deliver industry leading connectivity to its passengers for the foreseeable future. 

"Air Canada is pleased to announce it will offer customers the ability to stay connected whenever and wherever they fly by extending in-flight, North American connectivity to its wide-body aircraft flying overseas using satellite technology," said Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines at Air Canada. "While business travelers will welcome satellite Wi-Fi service as a productivity tool, it will have widespread appeal for all travelers by allowing them to stay in touch, access the internet and enjoy additional entertainment options throughout their entire journey."
