In addition to reaching a milestone with its satellite-based connectivity services, Gogo has hit additional milestones with its various connectivity solutions. Today, Gogo has its Air to Ground (ATG) solution installed on more than 1,700 aircraft and its next generation ATG technology – ATG-4 – installed on more than 100 aircraft, bringing its total number of installed aircraft to more than 1,800 across nine major airlines.

"Gogo continues to play a leading role in helping passengers connect at 30,000 feet in the U.S. and, soon, around the world," said Gogo's president and CEO Michael Small. "In addition to our roll-out of in-flight Internet, we have been able to continue to deploy our wireless in-flight entertainment solution, Gogo Vision."

Gogo Vision allows passengers to watch a movie on their own Wi-Fi enabled tablet or laptop. Today, the service is installed on more than 300 American, Delta and US Airways aircraft. Gogo expects to have more than 1,500 aircraft installed with Gogo Vision by the end of 2013.

"Gogo remains technology neutral and plans to add additional technologies to our portfolio as they become available to the aero market, including Inmarsat's Global Express Ka-satellite solution," added Small. "Adding satellite technologies to our suite of in-flight connectivity solutions allows us to deploy a variety of technologies that can serve our airline partners' entire fleet, regardless of aircraft size or where that aircraft might be flying."
