Air Canada Goes GoGo.

Aircell, the provider of 800 MHz cellular towers that connect to aircraft in North America, announced today that Air Canada, Canada’s largest airline, will offer the Aircell mobile broadband service.

The Gogo wireless service will be available to passengers on trans-border flights and makes Air Canada the first Canadian airline to offer inflight Wi-Fi.

Under this agreement, Air Canada will roll out the Gogo system on select flights, initially installing the system on its Airbus A319 aircraft that fly across the border into the United States. The airline expects to begin its initial deployment by spring 2009.

Air Canada and Aircell expect that the Gogo service will eventually provide passengers with seamless coverage from key Air Canada cities such as Montreal and Toronto to every Air Canada market in the continental U.S.
