Air Canada has introduced exterior cameras on a narrow-body aircraft for the first time on the upgraded Airbus A321. This new feature allows passengers to watch a pilot’s eye view of the take-off in real time on the seatback screens.
Now, Air Canada clients can choose one of two outside-view options as engineers have installed cameras on the belly and the tail of the Airbus A321.
Air Canada has also upgraded satellite-based connectivity on the plane to provide passengers with fast and reliable Wi-Fi internet access during the flight.
The new cabin on A321
Air Canada has fully refurbished the cabin on the A321. The plane’s got new seats, full-color LED mood lighting, and larger overhead bins for more hand luggage in the cabin.
The passengers will like power options at all seats as they can charge their mobile devices by power outlets, USB-A, and USB-C.
The new inflight entertainment system will feature in-flight entertainment via screens at each seat, offering the most extensive content overall of any airline in the Americas.
By now, Air Canada has updated only one Airbus A321 with the fin number C-GITU. The airline plans to retrofit its remaining 14 Airbus A321s and eight A320s starting this fall through to the end of 2025.
