Delta Air Lines extends 2Ku deal with Gogo

Thursday 5 May 2016 | 11:02 CET | News
Gogo announced that Delta Air Lines increased its commitment to Gogo's in-flight connectivity technology 2Ku. This increases Delta's total number of 2Ku committed aircraft to more than 600. Gogo's 2Ku technology is designed to be open so it's compatible with multiple satellite networks, which means the technology will be upgradeable over time without having to touch the aircraft. 2Ku installations have already started on the 737-800 and A319 fleets, and additional Delta fleets will be retrofitted with the new system. Delta will operate more than 35 aircraft with 2Ku by the end of 2016.
