Internet Delta

Delta Air Lines is now offering high-speed internet access on all trans-Atlantic flights between the United States and the UK, mainland Europe, Israel and West Africa.

From the UK, the US airline offers up to 11 peak-day flights from Heathrow and one from Manchester meaning more customers can get online at 30,000 feet with Delta.
“We already offer wi-fi across our entire domestic fleet and we’re delighted to extend the service to trans-Atlantic customers, giving them the option to work, keep in touch or surf the net throughout their flight,” said Nat Pieper, Delta’s senior vice president for Europe, Middle East and Africa. “More than 93% of our international fleet offers internet access and we’ll continue to use technology to make our customers’ travel experience more productive whenever they fly with Delta.”

Mr Pieper will be making his first appearance this week at the Business Travel Show since taking on the responsibility from Perry Cantarutti, now chief executive officer of SkyTeam on secondment.
Delta’s wi-fi is provided by Gogo and powered by high-speed, Ku-Band satellite technology and is available on up to 83 daily round-trip flights to and from 27 European cities plus Accra, Dakar, Lagos and Tel Aviv. Delta began installing Wi-Fi domestically in 2008 operates the world’s largest wi-fi equipped fleet.  www.delta.com
