High-speed satellite-based wi-fi connectivity provided by Gogo is now available across the entire Air Canada Rouge fleet of 65 aircraft that fly globally and across North America.
"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.
After connecting to the "Rouge Wi-Fi" network onboard, customers can choose from a selection of packages with starting prices of $8.50.
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 also come equipped with satellite-based wi-fi.
