Air Canada has become the first North American airline to offer a choice of complimentary Gogo Wi-Fi to its most frequent fliers.
“Earlier this year, Air Canada announced plans to launch an all new, digital-first loyalty program in June 2020. While we design the future program, we’re committed to adding new options and benefits for Altitude members today and over the next two years,” said Mark Nasr, vice-president Loyalty & eCommerce. “In-flight Wi-Fi is a critical amenity for business and leisure travelers alike, so we’re excited to become the first North American airline to offer the choice of unlimited Wi-Fi plans to our most frequent Altitude members.”
Each year, Air Canada rewards its most frequent fliers with Altitude status by allowing them to choose select privileges to personalise their travel experience. From later this year, the airline will offer Altitude Elite 75K and Super Elite 100K members the opportunity to select complimentary 6- and 12-month unlimited-use passes, respectively, for in-flight connectivity on board Air Canada, Air Canada Express and Air Canada Rouge operated flights.
Members will be able to choose this Select Privilege as part of the 2018 Altitude benefit year. The passes will also be eligible for use on Gogo’s 2Ku service.
