Free Wi-Fi? Yes, please!

It’s finally here! While Wi-Fi has been offered on a number of airlines for a while, passengers who wish to enjoy it have been required to fork over funds for access. However, travelers who want to stay connected during those long business flights can finally enjoy fully functional and FREE Wi-Fi, no payment necessary!

Delta’s CEO, Ed Bastian, announced the news this week, stating, “It’s free. There’s no fine print. We have invested over $1 billion to create this.” According to reports, free Wi-Fi will be offered on about 80% of Delta’s domestic fleet next month, with the service becoming available on more planes each week. By the end of the year, free Wi-Fi will be available on over 700 planes; Delta plans to offer free Wi-Fi on regional and international aircraft by the end of 2024.

The free Wi-Fi, available starting February 1st, is offered through a sponsorship from T-Mobile. In order to access the service, travelers will log in using their Delta SkyMiles account. Don’t have a Delta SkyMiles account? No worries! Becoming a member is free (and did we mention it now comes with FREE Wi-Fi on Delta flights?).

As if that wasn’t enough incentive to start traveling on Delta more frequently, the company also announced exciting summer plans: new in-flight entertainment systems. “But I thought Delta already had in-flight entertainment?” Yes, but now, your preferences will carry over different airplanes.

You were in the middle of watching that new release, but your plane landed early? No problem, Delta’s new in-flight entertainment systems can now remember where you left off, so you can catch the rest of the film on your return flight. It’s like your own personal Netflix in the air. (Or, if you actually wanted to watch your own personal Netflix, you can do that too, for free.)

While other airlines do offer Wi-Fi, in-flight entertainment, and other services, they typically charge for those perks, and the amount can vary depending on your frequent flyer status. With Delta, you no longer have to pick and choose what you want to pay for, or worry that you don’t have enough miles for the year. Their Wi-Fi is now free and available to all passengers. Happy travels!
