Cathay Pacific has chosen in-flight connectivity specialist Gogo to install wifi on its Boeing 777 and Airbus A330 fleets from mid-2018.
The airline has already introduced broadband services to its A350-900 fleet and says it is extending wifi due to increased demand for in-flight wifi from passengers. Gogo says it will install 2Ku on the aircraft, claiming the service offers connectivity that is comparable to what customers have on the ground.
Paul Loo, chief customer and commercial officer at Cathay Pacific, said: “We have been listening to our customers, who have told us that staying connected in-flight is important to them. We envisage that by 2020, all of our wide-body aircraft will have in-flight connectivity capabilities. This will open up a wealth of opportunities for us to provide more innovative experiences for our customers.”
