Air Canada to Provide Wi-Fi Service on North American Flights
Air Canada announced it will begin offering Wi-Fi Internet service to passengers on its North American routes under an agreement with in-flight Internet provider Gogo.
The airline currently offers in-flight Internet connectivity on two of its Airbus A319 planes operating in Canada and the United States, and plans to roll out the service to all of its 130 narrow-body aircraft by December 2015. The carrier will begin the installations in May of this year.
The service will use Gogo’s Air-to-Ground broadband network that is capable of connecting to laptops, tablets, and smartphones. Pricing has yet to be announced.
Under the agreement, the airline will also install Gogo 2KU and Inmarsat GlobalXpress KA-band satellite service on its international flights in 2015 as part of a trial run.
