Isle of Wight | September 4, 2019–Leading Inflight Entertainment & Connectivity (IFEC) provider, IFPL, celebrated a major milestone this month, supplying their three millionth industry part.

The three-millionth part was delivered to a world leading Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), just three years after the two-millionth, demonstrating continued sustainable growth.

IFPL Chief Operating Officer, Neil McGregor commented; “It is a testament to the whole IFPL team, that we have reached this new milestone so soon after reaching two million units, and is a testament to the investment we have made in our quality systems, and our manufacturing and product development capability. This combined with the development and introduction of new products, means that we aim to reach our four-millionth unit even sooner.”

The innovative three millionth unit is a twin USB-A product. The power outlet contains two reversible USB-A outlets with lightguides for easy location. The bi-directional insertion means that whichever way round the passenger tries to insert their USB connector they will always get it right.

This USB port is part of an extensive range of products which includes our latest USB power and data technology. See these products at the Airline Passenger Experience in Los Angeles this September.

Chicago | March 8, 2017– Gogo (NASDAQ: GOGO), the leading global provider of in-flight broadband connectivity and connectivity-enabled services to commercial and business aviation, has reached a major milestone by installing its 3,000th commercial aircraft with in-flight connectivity.

Today, the company has 3,000 commercial aircraft and more than 4,200 business aircraft, totaling 7,200 aircraft installed. More than 130 of the 3,000 commercial aircraft are now installed with Gogo’s industry leading 2Ku technology that leverages Gogo’s global satellite network.

“The demand for in-flight connectivity continues to grow at a rapid pace and we are quickly moving beyond connecting passengers to connecting flight attendants, pilots and eventually components on the planes themselves,” said Michael Small, president and CEO at Gogo. “To meet this demand, Gogo has invested in the best broadband networks to meet the needs of global aviation — no matter the size of the aircraft or where that aircraft flies.”

Most of the 7,200 aircraft are connected using Gogo’s North American ground network, but an increasing number of commercial aircraft are now flying on Gogo’s global satellite network.

2Ku relies on the new low profile, high efficiency Ku-band satellite antennas that outperform other connectivity solutions in the global aviation market. Since the announcement of Gogo’s 2Ku technology, 12 airlines representing more than 1500 aircraft have signed up for the service. Nearly all of these aircraft are expected to be installed by the end of 2018.

“Whether an aircraft is flying on our global satellite network or on our North American ATG network, we are delivering industry leading performance in terms of coverage, cost, capacity and reliability. With high-throughput satellites being added to our global network and an upgrade being made to our ATG network, both networks will bring even better performance in 2017 and beyond,” added Small.
