DSC_0629In-flight Wi-Fi provider Gogo announced Wednesday that it has outfitted over 1,500 commercial aircraft into service with satellite-based connectivity technology.

The company said it has installed 2Ku equipment on 1,262 aircraft as well as Ku technology on 252 jets. It also has a backlog of 850 installations for 2Ku.

Gogo entered the in-flight connectivity business with its first customer, American Airlines, in 2008.  The original Gogo service uses air-to-ground technology, while newer systems use much faster satellite connectivity.

The company’s customer list, in addition to American, includes Aer Lingus, Aeromexico, Air Canada, Alaska Airlines, British Airways, Delta Air Lines, Japan Airlines, United Airlines, and Virgin Atlantic.
