Air Canada to Offer Inflight Wi-Fi on International Flights

Air Canada has confirmed that it will offer satellite connectivity on international flights.

The technology will allow customers to email, surf the internet and stream entertainment at broadband speeds while flying anywhere in the world.

Air Canada already offers inflight Wi-Fi connectivity across its entire fleet of narrow-body aircraft in North America.

"Air Canada is pleased to announce it will offer customers the ability to stay connected whenever and wherever they fly by extending inflight, North American connectivity to its wide-body aircraft flying overseas using satellite technology," said Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines at Air Canada. "While business travellers will welcome satellite Wi-Fi service as a productivity tool, it will have widespread appeal for all travellers by allowing them to stay in touch, access the internet and enjoy additional entertainment options throughout their entire journey."

Air Canada will begin installing Gogo 2Ku satellite technology on its wide-body fleet commencing this fall with its Boeing 777 aircraft.
