Eutelsat has extended its capacity agreement with in-flight entertainment company Gogo.

As part of the new multi-year agreement, Gogo has leased HTS bandwidth on Eutelsat 10B satellite, to be leveraged over Europe and the Middle East. The new satellite is set to launch in 2022.

“We are advancing capacity capabilities given the growing demand for high-speed inflight connectivity services,” said Oakleigh Thorne, president/CEO Gogo. “Through our partnership with Eutelsat, Gogo 2Ku will continue to enable the best passenger experience for global airlines.”

“We are thrilled about our ongoing relationship with Gogo, a long-standing partner and a leading provider for inflight connectivity,” said Philippe Oliva, Eutelsat’s Chief Commercial Officer. “This agreement highlights the relevance of our newly ordered E-10B for inflight connectivity and we look forward to supporting Gogo as they increase capacity in Europe and the Middle East to provide the best services to their airline partners.”

Eutelsat will unveil its quarterly results on October 30th.
