Air Canada is introducing an interactive route map that enables passengers to passengers to research routes and flights on their seatback screens.
Called WhereWeFly, the map provides passengers with a map and searchable directory of all of Air Canada’s routes and destinations.
In one click, Air Canada’s hubs are showcased presenting all routes from their three primary global hubs in Toronto (YYZ), Montreal (YUL), or Vancouver (YVR).
Passengers can swiftly browse dates and specific flights in a calendar view, with flight times and aircraft details. They can plan their next trip from inside the in-flight entertainment map.
Air Canada is deploying WhereWeFly on their Panasonic seatback IFE and Thales Wireless Portal.
