Boeing has joined forces with in-flight Wi-Fi provider Gogo, with a view to installing connectivity solutions on all new aircraft during production.

If an evaluation of the project proves viable, the new technical services agreement (TSA) could see Gogo’s ATG-4 Wi-Fi solution line-fitted on new Boeing aircraft from 2015 onwards, and the roll-out of satellite solutions to follow in 2016.

“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,” said Michael Small, Gogo’s president & CEO.

Gogo already has an agreement in place with Boeing for the installation of systems on new Boeing 737 aircraft.
