Air Canada To Offer Wi-Fi In 2009

Thursday, November 6, 2008 3:59 PM

Air Canada has announced that it will be offering Wi-Fi service on select flights to the US in Spring 2009. Partnering with AirCell and GoGo, this is a great addition to Canadian air travel offerings. Realistically, we won't see domestic flights having this technology for a while: the reason the US flights are the first to get it has to do with Aircell's network, which currently is in the US only. Eventually I would assume they'll set up a network in Canada but I would be surprised to see that before 2010 at the very earliest.

Now the real question though is how much this service is going to be. Pricing details weren't part of the official release. We might have to wait and see until the first flights start offering the service.
