In-flight WiFi is most often a premium benefit that you pay for at the time of booking or as soon as you board a plane. Delta is changing that formula with the promise of free Wi-Fi on planes starting in February.
Delta has announced that it will be bringing free Wi-Fi to most domestic aircraft starting February 1, in partnership with T-Mobile, becoming the first major U.S. airline to offer such a service. By the end of 2023, 700 Viasat-equipped aircraft will have free Wi-Fi, and Delta plans to roll out the feature on international and regional flights by the end of 2024.
Many T-Mobile customers already have free onboard Wi-Fi on Delta flights, but Delta is eventually bringing its benefits to all of its passengers. To take advantage of this benefit, all you have to do is log into your Delta SkyMiles account (which is free to create) and you can connect for free.
Delta specifically calls this “fast, free Wi-Fi,” and while the airline doesn’t provide specific numbers, Delta’s Wi-Fi is decent compared to typical inflight Internet. We’ll have to see if it’s still as good when it’s available to everyone.
