SES (Euronext Paris:SESG) (LuxX:SESG) announced today that Gogo (NASDAQ: GOGO), the leading global provider of broadband connectivity products and services for aviation has signed a new capacity deal to enhance inflight connectivity services on key air travel routes over North America and the Pacific Ocean.

Gogo Bolsters Inflight Connectivity Capacity over North America and the Pacific with SES

As part of the new agreement, Gogo has leased all available capacity on SES’s AMC-4 satellite, which SES will move to a new orbital location to serve flights to, from and within the states of Alaska and Hawaii, flights along the west coast of the US and flights over the Pacific Ocean.

“One of the great benefits of the Ku ecosystem is the on-demand flexibility it offers us. Gogo’s scale and the scale of our satellite providers, with dozens of satellites in orbit, puts us in a unique position to deploy industry-leading capacity to any area of the globe,” said Michael Small, President and CEO at Gogo. “We’re also unique in that the capacity we are deploying is dedicated to the aero market and not shared with ground subscribers, maritime or other markets.”

“SES has a global fleet of over 50 GEO satellites in orbit, and will be launching five more satellites this year, three of which have massive throughput payloads. SES is one of the global operators who can quickly and effectively move existing assets and scale up across regions and routes where connectivity demand is on the rise. This robust global network of scalable, flexible satellite capacity enables SES to stay ahead of the ever-growing demands and requirements of the aero industry,” said Elias Zaccack, Senior Vice President of the Americas region and Mobility Solutions at SES. “With the recent launch of the SES-10 satellite, SES will place AMC-4 in an orbital slot to meet the growing demand for Gogo’s inflight connectivity services and allow us to further expand our alliance.”
