K5-Aviation Is Gogo’s First 2Ku Business Aviation Customer In Europe

Will Be Installed On An Airbus ACJ319 Operated By K5-Aviation 

Gogo has announced K5-Aviation as its first 2Ku business aviation customer in Europe, marking a significant milestone for the company. 

"The 2Ku era has begun in business aviation,” said Sergio Aguirre, Gogo Business Aviation’s general manager. “2Ku is a proven technology that delivers an experience unlike any other. This is the first of what we expect to be many more business aviation customers to choose 2Ku for global in-flight connectivity."
 
The first airframe in business aviation that will fly with Gogo’s 2Ku technology is an Airbus ACJ319 operated by K5-Aviation, a leading operator of ACJ aircraft, based in Germany. Fokker Services B.V. managed the 2Ku installation design and system integration including the EASA STC. Installation was performed at its facilities in Hoogerheide, The Netherlands.
 
"This is a great day for K5-Aviation because it brings Gogo’s newest technology to our cabin which means our passengers can stay connected almost anywhere we fly around the globe,” said Luca Madone of K5-Aviation. “Productivity during flight will increase with 2Ku, which will allow our passengers to drive their business forward even when traveling. They will also have the ability to live stream news, entertainment and sporting events."
 
“We see it as a great opportunity because we installed and certified the Gogo 2Ku technology in one of our completed Airbus VIP aircraft,” said Johan van Dorst, director of sales for Fokker Services B.V. “Having an EASA STC available for Airbus ACJ’s will greatly enhance our business, as well as Gogo’s.”
