Air Canada has launched next-generation satellite connectivity on its international fleet.
The company’s Boeing 777-300ER aircraft will have the new Air Canada Wi-Fi powered by Gogo, the fastest available on any Canadian airline.
“Air Canada customers on international wide-body flights will have access to the fastest internet service available on any Canadian carrier,” said Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines, at Air Canada. “Air Canada Wi-Fi will make traveling more enjoyable whether you’re connecting with family and friends, watching a favorite movie or TV program on the internet, or scrolling through your social media feeds.”
The entire Air Canada and Air Canada Route wide-body fleet will be equipped with the new Wi-Fi system by mid-2019, according to the company.
That includes the company’s Boeing 777 and 787, Air Canada Rouge Boeing 767-300 and Airbus 330.
“The speed and reliability of Air Canada Wi-Fi will also make it an excellent productivity tool for business travelers, who will be able to keep in touch and work during their journey so they can stay up-to-date and arrive fully prepared for any meeting or event,” Smith said.
Air Canada has been ramping up its Caribbean flights of late, most notably launching new service to St Vincent and the Grenadines.
