 MONTREAL, May 14 /PRNewswire/ -- In-Flight Phone International (IFPI), a Goeken Group Company, announced that In-Flight Phone Canada has been awarded a license to provide air-to-ground communications services by the Canadian Department of Communications.
 "Thanks to Mr. Perrin Beatty (Minister of Communications) and the Department of Communications, we will soon be able to offer air travelers in Canada a variety of communications and data services that will make travel time more productive and entertaining," said Sandra Goeken Martis, CEO and chairman of IFPI. Goeken Martis also notes that the reliable digital technology that In-Flight Phone Canada will be utilizing is now in full operation in the United States.
 IFP Canada has already signed agreements with a number of Canadian companies that will supply key communications equipment and network services. Negotiations with air carriers are currently underway.
 IFP Canada is an independent Canadian corporation. The company holds exclusive Canadian rights to In-Flight Phone's digital transmission technology which is far superior to existing analog systems both in clarity and in its ability to provide a wide range of services.
