Highlights from the Aircraft Interiors Expo 2017 in Hamburg

After a wonderful week in aviation friendly Hamburg, the show teams from Gogo are all back home. On behalf of us, we’d like to thank everyone who came to visit Gogo during Aircraft Interiors Expo 2017. The show was a huge success, with over 18,000 attendees from all across the global aviation industry. During the three days of the show, we had several major announcements, and in this article, we’ll recap what made the news for us at Aircraft Interiors Expo 2017.

Airbus High Bandwidth Connectivity program

One of the biggest pieces of news during the entire event was the announcement that Gogo has been selected by Airbus as a lead supplier for their High Bandwidth Connectivity (HBC) program. What this means to our company is factory line-fit installation of our 2Ku global satellite solution on Airbus A320 Family, A330, and A380 aircraft. Being part of the HBC program means airlines can place future aircraft orders with Airbus and have our 2Ku technology installed at the factory on all major fleet types.  Those aircraft are then delivered with 2Ku already installed and ready for service on day one instead of taking delivery of their new plane, and having to send it away for installation.

The news made the front page of the daily show magazine, featuring Blane Boynton, our VP of network solutions.
