Delta Air Lines will offer free inflight entertainment to passengers on its domestic jets and some regional airplanes beginning Aug. 1.
The airline announced Monday passengers on flights longer than 90 minutes will be able to access free entertainment via seatback screens or through their laptops, tablets or other mobile devices.
Itasca-based Gogo Inc. partnered with the airline to launch “Delta Studio.” Passengers sitting in premium seats will be able to access all of the content free of charge, while economy customers will have access to most titles for free.
“This type of integrated experience is a game changer for Delta and sets their entertainment offering apart from competitors,” said Ash ElDifrawi, Gogo’s chief commercial officer. “In addition, Delta Studio marks an important shift in how Gogo builds and delivers its products. Our goal is to provide the underlying technologies that enable our airline partners to create customized experiences for their customers.”
Delta claims to have the largest fleet of Internet-connected aircraft with more than 900 equipped for inflight Wi-Fi.
