The service is expected to be rolled out to JAL customers starting in the summer of 2014.
The new service will use Gogo’s Ku-satellite technology, which has been key to giving Gogo the ability to provide connectivity on trans-oceanic and international routes.
A Gogo spokesperson says that Gogo is in talks to provide in-flight Wi-Fi on other foreign airlines, but said there are no other deals to confirm at this time. According to its financial filings, Gogo initiated its international expansion efforts in the beginning of 2012.
As of April 2013, Gogo Connectivity was available on 1,908 commercial aircraft.
