Delta to offer streaming entertainment options on 950 Wi-Fi-equipped aircraft
Delta Air Lines is adding new, on-demand entertainment options to its fleet of more than 950 two-class Delta and Delta Connection aircraft, the world’s largest fleet of Wi-Fi equipped planes. The Delta Connect Wi-Fi portal will allow customers to stream television and movie options directly to their laptop or tablet while in flight. Streamed content will be accessible for 24 hours after a flight and available for playback on the ground through the same device used onboard. All 800 of Delta’s two-class domestic aircraft will be equipped with this new on-demand technology by the end of 2013. This new technology will be installed on Delta’s international fleet in conjunction with previously announced plans to install international Wi-Fi service on more than 150 widebody aircraft, scheduled to be completed by the end of 2015.
