Delta is to amend its 2Ku In-Flight Connectivity Services Agreement with Gogo.
The Amendment provides for the early expiration of the 2Ku Agreement on a fleet-by-fleet staggered schedule beginning in November of 2020 with Delta’s A321neos and running through July of 2022, concluding with A350-900 and A330-900 aircraft.
According to a statement by Oakleigh Thorne, Gogo President and CEO: “Though we do not relish the idea of having a competitor join us at Delta, this amendment gives us time to complete our 2Ka offering and add capacity to our 2Ku network and will enable us to compete effectively for the fleets in question.
“We are also very pleased to see Delta’s continued focus on providing free Wi-fi despite the impact of COVID-19 and view that as a positive for the in-flight connectivity industry as it will drive demand.
“We look forward to continuing to work with Delta to drive its vision.
