Delta Airlines adds free Wi-Fi

Just like Porter Airlines, Delta Airlines has announced free onboard Wi-Fi starting on February 1st. The free Wi-Fi will be available on most domestic (within the U.S.) flights and is expected to be offered on over 700 aircraft by the end of 2023. The airline also stated free Wi-Fi will be added to international and regional flights by the end of 2024. To receive free Wi-Fi you need to join the Delta SkyMiles program, which in itself is free to join.

Now the question will be, is Canada considered international for Delta (it should be, but in many cases we get lumped into the U.S.) and if not will some of their flights out of Canada have the free Wi-Fi as of February as well. If any of our readers are planning to fly Delta to the U.S. once this launches please let us know what you find onboard! (Source Delta)
