Inflight wi-fi connectivity specialist Gogo has confirmed a partnership with International Airlines Group (IAG) to install 2Ku technology on 118 of its aircraft.

The agreement, Gogo’s first with a European airline, includes installation of in-flight connectivity to IAG airline fleets including 118 British Airways aircraft, four Aer Lingus 757s and up to 15 Iberia widebodies.

The first British Airways aircraft is expected to be in service early next year with the majority of installations expected to be completed by 2019.

Michael Small, Gogo's president and CEO, said: "One of the many benefits of 2Ku is that it's built on an open architecture and can leverage numerous Ku satellites around the world today and new advancements in the Ku-band coming online in the future."
