has put its first wi-fi-equipped international aircraft—a -400—into service, the carrier says.
The aircraft also marks the debut of Gogo’s Ku-band satellite-based connectivity service. Delta is installing the service on its entire international fleet. The carrier has Gogo’s ground-based service on its 570-aircraft mainline domestic fleet.
Delta’s 747 fleet is the first to get the service. Three have been modified, and the other 13 will be done by mid-year.
Gogo is scheduled to complete installation on Delta’s entire 150-aircraft international fleet, including its, 767, 747, 330 and transoceanic , by 2016. Gogo earlier this month received approval to install its product on Delta’s fleet and the provider and carrier are in final testing.
