ITASCA, Ill., Nov. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Gogo (NASDAQ: GOGO), a leading global aero communications service provider, has received STCs from the FAA to install its Ku-band satellite equipment on Boeing 757-200 and 767-400 aircraft operated by Delta Air Lines. Gogo now has five STCs for its Ku-band satellite service on Delta's international fleet; Gogo previously received FAA certification to install its Ku-band equipment on Boeing 747-400, 767-300 and Airbus A330 aircraft operated by Delta.
