This Monday, Air Canada announced it will offer satellite connectivity on international flights this coming fall.

At present, Air Canada is the only Canadian carrier to offer customers in-flight Wi-fi across its entire narrow-body fleet of aircraft on flights within North America.

Under the agreement announced today, Air Canada will begin installing Gogo® 2Ku satellite technology on its wide-body fleet commencing this fall with its Boeing 777 aircraft.

"Air Canada is pleased to announce it will offer customers the ability to stay connected whenever and wherever they fly by extending in-flight, North American connectivity to its wide-body aircraft flying overseas using satellite technology," said Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines at Air Canada.

"While business travelers will welcome satellite Wi-Fi service as a productivity tool, it will have widespread appeal for all travelers by allowing them to stay in touch, access the internet and enjoy additional entertainment options throughout their entire journey."

Air Canada is Canada's largest domestic and international airline serving more than 200 airports on six continents.

The airline provides scheduled passenger service directly to 63 airports in Canada, 56 in the United States and 86 in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia, Australia, the Caribbean, Mexico, Central America and South America.
