Air Canada joins wi-fi brigade

With another major carrier adding the service, wi-fi is now quickly becoming the norm, although the standard offered does vary.

Air Canada has announced it will offer satellite connectivity on international flights so customers can email, surf the internet and stream entertainment at broadband speeds while flying anywhere in the world. 

The airline will begin installing Gogo® 2Ku satellite technology on its wide-body fleet, beginning this autumn with its Boeing 777 aircraft. It is the only Canadian carrier to offer customers in-flight wi-fi connectivity across its entire fleet of narrow-body aircraft in North America. 

Air Canada is Canada's largest domestic and international airline, serving more than 200 airports on six continents and flying 41m customers last year. The company provides scheduled passenger service directly to 63 airports in Canada, 56 in the United States and a further 86 around the rest of the world.  www.aircanada.com
