Gogo (NASDAQ: GOGO), the global leader in providing broadband connectivity solutions and wireless entertainment to the aviation industry, announced today that it has received regulatory approval from the various Chinese regulatory bodies through its local partner China Telecom Satellite, and will work with China Telecom Satellite to offer in-flight connectivity service on International flights operating in and out of China starting in October.
"This is really a ground-breaking moment as we expand our global reach as an organization into China and other parts of the world. For passengers on Gogo equipped flights currently flying into China, this means they will be able to enjoy seamless service once they reach Chinese air space," said Gogo's president and CEO, Michael Small. "We believe China Telecom Satellite will be a very strong and effective partner for China's in-flight communication market and both parties will extend the cooperation to Chinese airlines in the future."
"Gogo is a world-leading in-flight connectivity service provider and we look forward to a partnership that takes full advantage of our respective abilities to deliver superior in-flight connectivity service for both International and Chinese airlines," said Lv Junli, president of China Telecom Satellite.
Gogo currently has one International airline partner operating with service to China, and recently announced it has signed a term sheet with Beijing based Shareco Technologies to install its 2Ku in-flight connectivity technology on 50 commercial aircraft for Shareco's airline partners, including Hainan Airlines and Beijing Capital Airlines. In addition to in-flight connectivity, Gogo will also provide its wireless in-flight entertainment solution – Gogo Vision – for Shareco to install on these aircraft.
