Today’s connected commercial aircraft, most of them flying North American routes, generate around $150,000 in revenue per year per aircraft for bandwidth service providers. Gogo Inc., which dominates the U.S. market, has said that figure will climb to $750,000 or more in the coming five years as airlines race to provide broadband to customers and to the airlines themselves for pilots and crew, and to send aircraft health status.
