Delta Air Lines is to add onboard WiFi to 223 regional jet aircraft operated by Delta Connection carriers, expanding by 40% the number of Delta aircraft featuring Gogo Inflight Internet service.

Delta completed installing WiFi on all mainline domestic aircraft earlier this month.

"Adding WiFi capabilities to our two-class regional jets marks another milestone in our efforts to invest more than $2 billion to enhance our airport facilities, aircraft fleet and onboard services for customers through 2013," said Tim Mapes, Delta's Senior Vice President Marketing. "We continue to make significant progress in aligning the products and services offered by our regional airline partners so that Delta customers have an experience consistent with that available aboard Delta's mainline fleet."

Installations of WiFi on Delta Connection jets will begin in January and should be completed by the end of 2011. Once complete, customers flying on all Delta domestic flights with a First Class cabin will enjoy WiFi access, including service on every Delta Shuttle flight between New York-LaGuardia and Boston, Chicago-O'Hare and Washington, D.C.

Delta began installing WiFi on domestic mainline aircraft in 2008. With 549 mainline aircraft and the addition of 223 regional jets to the WiFi program, more than 80% of Delta's domestic fleet or 772 aircraft will feature Gogo Inflight Internet access.

Delta Connection aircraft featuring First Class cabins include Embraer 175, Bombardier CRJ700 and Bombardier CRJ900 models operated by Delta Connection. The aircraft feature between 9 and 12 seats in First Class and between 56 and 64 seats in Economy.
