The contract will provide service on at least 58 Embraer and Boeing 737 aircraft operated by with the Mexico-based airline. At least 20 of Aeromexico's 737 aircraft will receive Gogo's next generation in-flight connectivity solution -- 2Ku.

Aeromexico is the first airline to commit to 2Ku.

"We couldn't be more excited to work with Aeromexico to bring Gogo connectivity and Gogo's wireless in-flight entertainment solution -- Gogo Vision -- to Mexico and beyond," said Gogo's president and CEO, Michael Small. "Aeromexico's commitment to 2Ku is evidence of the advantages that 2Ku brings to the market -- especially for aircraft that operate in tropical regions around the world."

Gogo expects both its connectivity service and Gogo Vision to be available to Aeromexico passengers beginning in the fourth quarter of 2015.
