Delta Rolls Out In-Flight Internet Service

Posted in Airline News, Delta AirNo comments

Delta Air Lines Inc. announced Tuesday the launching of an in-flight Internet service onboard six of its aircraft.

The offering, called Gogo, will eventually be rolled out to 300 domestic aircraft.

Initially the Internet service will only be offered on five MD-88 aircraft flying Delta Shuttle routes between New York’s LaGuardia Airport and Boston’s Logan and Washington’s Reagan airports. One Boeing 757, which flies throughout Delta’s domestic system, will also be included in the system.

By the end of the year, Delta hopes to have the service available on 10 aircraft.

The Internet capabilities were made possible thanks to a partnership with Aircell, an Itasca, Ill.-based provider of Internet solutions. Any Wi-Fi enabled device, such as laptops or smartphones, will be able to connect to the service.

To gain access, passengers can pay a flat fee of $9.95 on flights of three hours or less, and $12.95 on flights of more than three hours.

Passengers on participating flights will have free access to the service between Dec. 16-31.
