Air Canada has completed the installation of
Rouge Wi-Fi high-speed satellite-based connectivity provided by
Gogo across the entire Air Canada Rouge fleet of 65 aircraft.
"Customers now can access Rouge Wi-Fi high-speed
internet connectivity on their own devices whenever they are
onboard an Air Canada Rouge aircraft anywhere in the world, giving
everyone the ability to stay connected to email, surf the web, or
stream their favourite movies and TV shows from services like
Netflix and YouTube," said Andrew Yiu, Vice President, Product at
Air Canada. "We are excited to now offer fast, reliable Wi-Fi
options onboard all Rouge aircraft for the increasing numbers of
customers seeking connectivity when flying."
Customers can choose from a selection of Wi-Fi
packages to suit their requirements with starting prices of
CA$8.50 simply by connecting to the "Rouge Wi-Fi" network onboard
and following the instructions.
In addition to the full Air Canada Rouge fleet,
satellite based Wi-Fi is already available on all Air Canada
Boeing 777s, and most Boeing 787s and Airbus A330s with the
remainder to be completed early 2020.
Air Canada Wi-Fi connectivity is also available
across the carrier's entire mainline narrow body fleet and the Air
Canada Express Embraer 175 and Bombardier CRJ-900 fleets.
Air Canada's new Airbus A220 fleet which it
begins taking delivery of before the end of 2019 will come
equipped with satellite based Wi-Fi.
