DSC_4877 (2)Air Canada announced that it will begin to offer complimentary access to Gogo Wi-Fi to elite members of its Altitude frequent flyer program.

Later this year, members with Altitude Elite 75K status will be given complimentary six-month unlimited-use Gogo passes, while those with Altitude Super Elite 100K status will be given one-year unlimited-use passes.

The passes will be valid onboard Air Canada, Air Canada Express, and Air Canada rouge flights. In addition to Gogo Internet, the passes will give members access to Gogo’s 2Ku system on aircraft so equipped.

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.
