This holiday season, Air Canada is offering a complimentary Holiday Messaging Pass to all flyers on Gogo-equipped Air Canada, Air Canada Express, and Air Canada Rouge flights to stay connected during the holidays.

This special promotion started December 15 and will run through January 6, 2019 and is available fleet wide on domestic and international flights. While onboard, passengers using their smartphone can send and receive holiday greetings at no charge using applications like WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Viber and iMessage.

“The reliability and performance of Gogo 2Ku allows us to enable unique experiences for our airline partners and their customers. Free messaging is great way for airlines to give customers a way to stay connected during their holiday travels,” says John Wade, president of Commercial Aviation at Gogo. “We are excited to partner with Air Canada to help them bring free messaging onboard to drive higher passenger satisfaction and take rates.”

This is the first time the airline has offered free messaging to all customers. Air Canada also offers Altitude Elite 75K and Super Elite 100K members the opportunity to select complimentary 6- and 12-month unlimited use passes, respectively to access the internet in flight.
