Air Canada to Offer In-Flight Wi-Fi on International Flights
Air Canada announced that it plans to offer in-flight Internet on international flights.
The carrier, in partnership with Gogo, will begin installing the company’s 2Ku system on its entire international fleet of wide-body aircraft this fall, beginning with its Boeing 777s.
Gogo’s 2Ku system offers speeds of a minimum of 70 Mbps to the aircraft, seven times faster than Gogo’s fastest air-to-ground network. It uses two Ku-band connections to send and receive data between the plane and an orbiting satellite.
Air Canada already offers in-flight Internet across its entire fleet of narrow-body aircraft on domestic routes.
