Commercial airline Internet and entertainment provider Gogo, of Itasca, will begin installing its ATG connectivity service for American Airlines on 30 new Bombardier CRJ-900 NextGen aircraft, which will be delivered to American starting this month.
The additional connected aircraft will build on the more than 850 aircraft in American's fleet that are currently equipped with Gogo's In-flight Internet services.
"American Airlines was the first commercial airline to launch connectivity service with Gogo, and we are excited to continue to build on our long-standing relationship with American by extending Wi-Fi service to passengers flying on its new regional jets," said Gogo's president and CEO, Michael Small.
American currently has Gogo's ATG and ATG-4 service installed on its aircraft. By adding Wi-Fi to these regional jets, more American Airlines passengers will be able to connect.
