Air Canada is rolling out wifi across its North American fleet from next month, the airline has confirmed.
The agreement with technology provider GoGo makes Air Canada the first Canadian carrier to launch in-flight wifi.
"In today's connected world, our customers want to access email, mobile device applications and the internet wherever they are, both to increase their work productivity and expand their leisure options," said Air Canada's CCO Benjamin Smith.
"The introduction of Wi-Fi across our narrow-body North American fleet will be another welcome amenity for customers," Smith added.
The airline said its currently limiting the service to North American flights but does plan to roll out wifi across all of its international flights in the future.
Air Canada currently has two wifi equipped Airbus 319 aircraft operating in Canada and the US and plans to begin fitting the remaining fleet in May with a completion date of December 2015.
The airline said it will "offer variations on pricing, such as single use for one flight or a package for a number of flights".
