Hardly one week into the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai)’s recommendation for allowing internet services in airlines, Chicago-based in-flight internet company Gogo has announced its plan to enter the Indian market by establishing a technology development centre in Chennai. By March, the technology development centre in Chennai will be fully operational, and Gogo will commence its operations with a team of around 30 engineers and developers from there. The company expects to increase the headcount to close to 100 by the end of 2018. The Chennai facility and team are being set up as part of Gogo’s continued international expansion and will support the company’s in-flight connectivity technology development and engineering efforts. The facility will also support Gogo’s marketing efforts with India-based airlines as the market for in-flight services opens up in the region. “We are excited to set up base in India with our facility in Chennai. Our presence in India provides access to a large pool of technology and software talent, which will enable us to accelerate the development of our in-flight connectivity and entertainment solutions and introduce them to the market,” said Anand Chari, executive vice-president and chief technology officer. With more than 25 years of experience, Gogo is the global leader in in-flight connectivity and wireless entertainment services for commercial and business aircraft. At present, Gogo has 19 commercial airline partners.
