Gogo LEO services continues progress apace
Gogo and its antenna provider, Hughes, completed preliminary design review of Gogo's exclusive electronically steerable antenna (ESA) assembly in February, bringing Gogo one step closer to realising its vision.

Gogo Business Aviation's global Low Earth Orbit (LEO) broadband service has gained momentum with significant programme achievements by Gogo and strategic partners, OneWeb and Hughes Network Systems, an EchoStar company.

Gogo's LEO satellite network provider, OneWeb, completed the launch of its LEO constellation with more than 588 satellites in orbit at the end of March, and is expected to be operational and aero-ready in the first quarter of 2024, with Gogo's global broadband service coming online in the second half of 2024.

Gogo and its antenna provider, Hughes, completed preliminary design review of Gogo's exclusive electronically steerable antenna (ESA) assembly in February, bringing Gogo one step closer to realising its vision of delivering an order-of-magnitude improvement in inflight connectivity performance for all sizes of aircraft around the globe, many of which have no viable broadband solution today.

“Because we have strong partners in OneWeb and Hughes we're ahead of schedule, and we continue to make tremendous progress on the development of the system components,” says Sergio Aguirre, Gogo's president and chief operating officer. “Gogo's global broadband service will deliver best-in-class global performance that is faster, smaller, more affordable and easier to install than other global satellite solutions.”

Customers interested in harnessing the power of Gogo's LEO and ESA technology can pre-provision their aircraft now by installing an Avance system, and once Gogo global broadband launches, will only need to add the antenna.

With Gogo's already extensive portfolio of products and services, unparalleled industry expertise and global customer service, the commercial launch of Gogo's LEO solution will complete the company's holistic offering with a product to serve every segment and every customer of the business aviation market, including the almost 30,000 business jets worldwide flying without broadband connectivity today.
