Delta expands in-flight Wi-Fi content

Delta Air Lines has added free access to shop and onboard all Delta and Delta Connection flights with in-flight Wi-Fi service.



"Delta continues to offer new technology and innovation that delivers on our customer preferences while they travel with us," said Bob Kupbens, Delta's vice president of marketing and digital commerce. "Our customers enjoy our free content options in-flight and free access to Amazon provides a convenient way to shop online at 30,000ft for things they want on the ground."



To access Amazon while in-flight, customers open their internet browser, access the Delta Connect Wi-Fi portal and click on one of the Amazon banners to begin shopping. Delta Connect also provides free access to real-time travel information, news content from The Wall Street Journal and People magazine, exclusive shopping deals and entertainment options by Delta and its on-board wireless provider Gogo.



Delta operates the world's largest Wi-Fi-equipped fleet of aircraft, including its entire fleet of 550 domestic mainline aircraft. More than 800 Delta aircraft, including most Delta Connection two-class regional jets, are equipped with in-flight Wi-Fi service.



The Wi-Fi enhancements are part of Delta's previously announced plan to invest more than US$2 billion in enhanced global products, services and airport facilities through 2013. Delta is also installing full flat-bed seats on more than 140 widebody aircraft, adding personal, in-seat entertainment for both BusinessElite and Economy class customers on all widebody flights and improving terminal facilities for international customers at its two largest global gateways – Atlanta and New York-JFK.
