SHARE Gogo gets OK to install systems on JAL jets

Gogo LLC’s satellite-based communications systems have been approved for installation in Japan Airlines’ fleet of 767-300 jets.

Itasca-based Gogo said Thursday the 767-300s are the third aircraft type in JAL’s fleet approved for installation. The company is seeking approval for the airline’s 737-800 jets, the only aircraft not yet cleared.

“We are in the install process on several aircraft and expect to have a consumer launch on JAL this summer,” Gogo’s president and chief executive Michael Small said.

Gogo provides inflight communications and entertainment systems to the commercial and business aviation industries. The company has systems installed on jets operated by airlines such as American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, United Airlines, and US Airways.
