Delta managing director Glenn Latta told, “Bringing our vision for the future of travel to reality demands putting our technology through rigorous testing and examining every aspect to guarantee passengers get speed and dependability that surpasses their expectations.”
Latta stated, “We will provide complimentary Wi-Fi on a limited number of flights throughout the summer to test our technology and acquire key insights that will allow us to offer Wi-Fi on Delta that is as fast and reliable as possible for every customer.”
The carrier did not disclose a target date for the formal introduction of the free Wi-Fi service after Delta Air Lines Testing Free Wi-Fi ends, nor did it explain whether all high-speed Wi-Fi would be free or whether there would be a cost to use the highest-quality connection.
Delta presently offers test connections only on mainline routes and not on regional flights operated by SkyWest or Endeavor Air under the Delta Connection brand. Other airlines, including JetBlue, American, Southwest, and Hawaiian, have also opened and begun testing free Wi-Fi connections.
