Delta goes wi-fi

By early 2013 Delta Air Lines will begin offering in-flight internet service on its long haul international fleet of more than 150 aircraft, which includes Boeing 777, 767, 747, Airbus 330 and transoceanic Boeing 757.

The expanded wi-fi service will use satellites to provide coverage internationally and will complement the existing air-to-ground service already provided by Gogo for aircraft flying within the domestic US.
Delta already operates the world’s largest wi-fi equipped fleet of aircraft with more than 3,000 flights daily, including all its 550 domestic mainline planes.  More than 800 Delta aircraft, including all Delta Connection two-class regional jets, are equipped with in-flight wi-fi service offering more than 400,000 customers per day access to the internet.
The international service will use high-bandwidth Ku-band capacity satellites to provide global coverage.  When complete in 2015, Delta will operate approximately 1,000 wi-fi equipped aircraft in its worldwide fleet.

Delta Air Lines has been named the “Top Tech-Friendly US Airline” by PCWorld magazine for its innovation in technology. www.delta.com
