Air Canada is testing WIFI Service

Air Canada is currently testing WIFI service provided by Gogo Internet Service. The service is available on a per flight basis for 9.95(Laptop) and 7.95(Smartphone)

Initially, the system will be available only in the continental United States via Aircell, which has built a high-speed mobile network for commercial and business aviation.

Air Canada plans to extend the system to other North American routes with a Canadian air-to-ground network.

The airline also released last month a free BlackBerry application that lets travellers track flight information, such as schedule changes.

I personally would pay the premium to be able to read online material, keep in touch with all my Black Berry Messenger Friends, receive emails, etc. So i hope that they implement this soon, as I am scheduled to take a long flight over the ocean in March!
