Gogo’s inflight wi-fi service is now active on three Japan Airlines’ (JAL) Boeing 777-200 aircraft as work continues to outfit all the airline’s domestic aircraft with the service.

The announcement from Itasca, Illinois-based Gogo comes roughly eight months after it reached an agreement to install the service on JAL’s 737-800s, 767-300s, 777-200s and 777-300s.

JAL has received supplemental type certificates from the US Federal Aviation Administration and certificates from Japan’s Civil Aviation Bureau to install Gogo on all those aircraft types.

“This is a major milestone for Gogo as this aircraft represents the first commercial airline outside of North America to be connected with Gogo’s connectivity service,” says Gogo’s president and chief executive Michael Small.

JAL’s fleet includes 12 737-800s, 46 767-300s, 25 777-200s, 20 777-300s and 15 787-8s, according to Flightglobal’s Ascend Fleets database.
