Gogo has received regulatory approval from Chinese regulatory bodies to work with China Telecom Satellite to provide international in-flight connectivity services over China, effective October, 2016

"This is really a ground-breaking moment as we expand our global reach as an organization into China and other parts of the world. For passengers on Gogo equipped flights currently flying into China, this means they will be able to enjoy seamless service once they reach Chinese air space," said Michael Small, president and CEO of Gogo.

"We believe China Telecom Satellite will be a very strong and effective partner for China's in-flight communication market and both parties will extend the cooperation to Chinese airlines in the future."

Lv Junli, president of China Telecom Satellite, added: "Gogo is a world-leading in-flight connectivity service provider and we look forward to a partnership that takes full advantage of our respective abilities to deliver superior in-flight connectivity service for both international and Chinese airlines.” GTB
