Delta is getting creative with its inflight WiFi
service by partnering Amazon to give passengers free access to Amazon.com and Amazonwireless.com onboard all Delta and
Delta Connection flights.
"Delta continues to offer new technology and
innovation that delivers on our customer preferences while they
travel with us," said Bob Kupbens, Delta's vice president –
Marketing and Digital Commerce. "Our customers enjoy our free
content options inflight and free access to Amazon provides a
convenient way to shop online at 30,000 feet for things they want
on the ground."
To access Amazon while inflight, customers open
their internet browser, access the Delta Connect WiFi portal and
click on one of the Amazon banners to begin shopping. Delta
Connect also provides free access to real-time travel information,
news content from The Wall Street Journal and People magazine,
exclusive shopping deals and entertainment options by Delta and
its on-board wireless provider Gogo.
Delta operates one of the world's largest
WiFi-equipped fleets of aircraft, including its entire fleet of
550 domestic mainline aircraft. More than 800 Delta aircraft,
including most Delta Connection two-class regional jets, are
equipped with inflight WiFi service.
