June 11 Update: Air Canada adds fast satellite Wi-Fi to international fleet, Canalta Rewards-Humboldt Broncos donation update & more

Air Canada has expanded their Wi-Fi options on their
planes which we have become accustomed to mostly for flights within
North America to some of their international flights:

Air Canada has begun offering next-generation, satellite connectivity on its
wide-body international fleet with the introduction of Air Canada Wi-Fi
provided by Gogo. Starting with flights operated by Boeing 777-300ER
aircraft, the new service will be the fastest available on
any Canadian airline and makes Air Canada the first Canadian carrier to
offer customers the ability to stream TV and movies in-flight through
the internet.

Air Canada Satellite Wi-Fi is now available on the airline’s
Boeing 777-300ER aircraft and on Air Canada Rouge’s narrow-body fleet.
The entire Air Canada and Air Canada Rouge wide-body fleet – including
the Boeing 777-200LR, 787-8/9 and Airbus 330 and Air Canada Rouge
Boeing 767-300ER – is scheduled to be equipped with the system by
mid-2019. Customers can choose from a selection of Wi-Fi packages to
suit their needs and Air Canada is offering special introductory
pricing for the service starting at $5 on the airline’s Boeing
777-300ER fleet until August 31, 2018. Customers can determine if a
flight has Wi-Fi available by an icon displayed at time of booking or,
for upcoming flights, by consulting www.aircanada.com/wifi.

Since early April Canalta Rewards members
have been donating their points to help the Humboldt Broncos after their
tragedy. The donations closed towards the end of May and members
donated a total of $17,250 of their points to the cause! Canalta
Rewards topped up the amount to provide the full donation of $20,000 to
the SJHL Player Assistance Program. These funds will be used to help
support the team as they work towards returning for the 2019 season.
Bill Chow (President of the SJHL) can be seen accepting the cheque from
Gary Hoffert (Regional VP of Canalta Hotels) on behalf of the SJHL and
Humboldt Broncos.
