Today we are proud to announce that our industry leading 2Ku inflight connectivity solution has been chosen by Air Canada for its Bombardier CS300 aircraft. The technology will be installed as a line-fit option at Bombardier.
“Air Canada was the first in Canada to deploy the service on their entire mainline fleet of aircraft. They have been at the forefront of technology adoption and we are excited to deploy 2Ku on additional aircraft,” said Oakleigh Thorne, Gogo’s president and CEO. “We also are excited to work with Bombardier to have this technology installed at the factory.”
“At Air Canada, we continually seek to elevate the travel experience. By combining Gogo’s 2Ku in-flight connectivity, giving customers the ability to work, be entertained and communicate in-flight, and Bombardier’s next generation aircraft, we will be able to offer our customers a superlative level of onboard service,” said Andrew Yiu, Vice President of Product at Air Canada.
Air Canada has 45 CS300 aircraft on order with an option for an additional 30 aircraft. Air Canada now has over 170 narrow and widebody aircraft committed to the technology.
More than 2,000 aircraft are slated to be installed with Gogo’s 2Ku technology representing 16 of the world’s leading airlines. Today, more than 650 aircraft are flying with 2Ku technology.
