Gogo has appointed Patrick Carroll as regional president in Asia Pacific (APAC). Carroll will manage Gogo’s airline accounts, certification and operations in the APAC region from Shanghai and will report to Gogo COO John Wade.
Carroll is a 30-year aviation veteran, holding a variety of operational and management roles in the APAC region at Airbus and BAE Systems. He is also a certified flight instructor, chartered engineer, and was awarded an OBE, an honor from the Queen of England for services to the aviation industry.
Gogo currently provides in-flight connectivity services to Japan Airlines and Japan Transocean Air. Earlier this year, the company made an announcement securing regulatory approval to provide service on aircraft flying in Chinese air space and began service in China working with China Telecom Satellite.
“As the growth of connected aviation in Asia Pacific expands, Gogo is committed to serving our airline partners in that region along with cultivating new growth opportunities for our 2Ku satellite technology in this market,” said Wade.
