Air France-KLM to Install Gogo Wi-Fi on Long-Haul Fleet
The airline will install the in-flight Wi-Fi provider’s 2Ku technology on its entire 124 aircraft long-haul fleet.
Air France-KLM’s first Gogo-equipped aircraft is scheduled to be placed in service by the end of next year. A majority of the rest of the installations will take place between 2018 and 2019.
Gogo’s 2Ku system offers speeds of a minimum of 70 Mbps to the aircraft, seven times faster than Gogo’s fastest air-to-ground network. It uses two Ku-band connections to send and receive data between the plane and an orbiting satellite.
