Air Canada offers satellite connectivity on international flights



 
Air Canada has begun offering next-generation, satellite connectivity on its wide-body international fleet with the introduction of Air Canada Wi-Fi provided by Gogo, the company said. 

Starting with flights operated by Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, the new service will be the fastest available on any Canadian airline and makes Air Canada the first Canadian carrier to offer customers the ability to stream TV and movies in-flight through the Internet.

Air Canada Satellite Wi-Fi is now available on the airline´s Boeing 777-300ER aircraft and on Air Canada Rouge´s narrow-body fleet. The entire Air Canada and Air Canada Rouge wide-body fleet — including the Boeing 777-200LR, 787-8/9 and Airbus 330 and Air Canada Rouge Boeing 767-300ER — is scheduled to be equipped with the system by mid-2019.
