Gogo (NASDAQ: GOGO) said it has received a supplemental type certificate from the FAA to install its Ku-band satellite equipment on Airbus A330 aircraft.
This is Gogo´s second STC for its Ku-band satellite service on Delta; Gogo previously received FAA certification to install its Ku-band equipment on Boeing 747-400 aircraft.
Gogo´s Ku-band satellite connectivity service is currently in the final phases of customer testing on Delta´s 747-400 aircraft with completion of installation for the full 747-400 fleet targeted for the middle of 2014. With the newly-issued A330 STC, Gogo and Delta can begin initial testing of the service on their A330 fleet before the service goes live to consumers. Gogo expects to install its Ku-band connectivity service on Delta´s entire international fleet by the end of 2015.
