Gogo (GOGO -3%) has obtained regulatory approval to provide Ku-band satellite Web access to planes flying over Eastern and Western Russia.

The approval follows deals with Russian satellite service providers AltegroSky and RuSat. Service in the aforementioned regions is expected to start this month.

Gogo, whose early growth has been driven by U.S. service deals, says it's now able to offer its services in over 180 countries, and is "on target to have 50 to 100 international aircraft flying by the end of the year."
