Gogo has announced that Air Canada is now the first North American airline to offer the choice of complimentary Gogo inflight Wi-Fi to their most frequent flyers.
Each year, Air Canada says it recognises its most frequent flyers with Altitude status and offers them the ability to choose select privileges to personalise their travel experience.
Beginning later this year, the airline will offer Altitude Elite 75K and Super Elite 100K members the opportunity to select complimentary six- and 12-month unlimited use passes, respectively, for inflight Wi-Fi on board Air Canada, Air Canada Express and Air Canada Rouge operated flights.
John Happ, Gogo’s Regional President, Americas, said: “We are delighted to partner with Air Canada to bring the industry’s leading inflight connectivity solution to their loyal customers for free.
“Gogo is finding new ways to leverage connectivity to enable unique experiences for our airline partners that fit their individual needs.
Free Gogo for Air Canada’s most frequent customers is a great example of how we are delivering on this for our airline partners.”
Mark Nasr, Air Canada’s Vice President Loyalty and eCommerce, added: “Earlier this year, Air Canada announced plans to launch an all-new, digital-first loyalty programme in June 2020.
“While we design the future programme, we’re committed to adding new options and benefits for Altitude members today and over the next two years.
“Inflight Wi-Fi is a critical amenity for business and leisure travellers 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.”
Members will be able to choose the Select Privilege as part of the 2018 Altitude benefit year. The passes will also be eligible for use on Gogo’s 2Ku service high-speed satellite inflight Wi-Fi solution.
