In-flight Wi-Fi provider Gogo is making its first business foray into Latin America next year.

Mexico’s largest airline AeroMexico announced today that it will offer Gogo’s in-flight Wi-Fi and in-flight entertainment service Gogo Vision onboard at least 75 aircraft in the second half of 2014.

AeroMexico will be Gogo’s first airline partner in Mexico and throughout Latin America. It currently powers in-flight Wi-Fi onboard 9 North American carriers and Japan Airlines.

AeroMexico continues to compete with a large and affordable domestic bus industry. Adding Wi-Fi is another way to give the flag carrier a competitive edge over low-cost carriers and ground transit.
