Air Canada’s leisure airline, Air Canada Rouge, has begun offering high-speed satellite Internet service aboard its A319 aircraft, with more to follow.
Beginning this month, Air Canada Rouge will be rolling out Gogo’s new 2KU service on all 20 Air Canada Rouge narrow-body A319s, followed by the airline’s A32s later this year, and Boeing 767s by the end of 2018.
Air Canada was the first Canadian carrier to offer customers in-flight connectivity. The service will enable flyers to access email, stream video and music, surf the web and more while flying.
“High-speed Internet is another great on-board entertainment option for our customers and strengthens Air Canada Rouge’s promise to provide a wonderful beginning and ending to any vacation,” Benjamin Smith, president of Air Canada’s passenger airlines business said.
Air Canada Rouge boasts a fleet of 48 aircraft, with over 100 routes on five continents.
