Once connected, you can browse the internet, check your email, or watch movies and TV shows. This guide will show you how to connect to Delta Airlines wifi and what to do once you’re online.

What is Wifi?

Wifi is a wireless internet connection. This means that you can connect to the internet without using any cables or wires. Wifi is becoming increasingly common and can be found in many public places such as coffee shops, libraries, and airports.

Not all airlines provide wifi on their flights, but Delta Airlines does offer wifi to all passengers.

Benefits of inflight Wifi:

– Stay connected with friends and family while in the air

– Check email or catch up on work

– Stream movies, TV shows, or music

– Browse the internet

Does Delta Inflight Wifi?

Delta provides its passengers with Wi-Fi, powered by Intelsat (formerly known as Gogo) and Viasat. 40% of their planes have this feature available, which includes more than 250 routes. The service’s speed should be enough to stream videos using a laptop, tablet or smartphone from the time boarding starts till after the plane has landed at its destination.

Delta Air Lines partnered with Gogo in 2008 to introduce the first inflight wifi service. In response to the increased demand for high-speed internet over the past few years, Delta is now offering a higher quality stream of available high-speed internet on their 3 types of aircraft fleets totaling 313 planes – all thanks to Viasat.

Delta Airlines now offer free messaging services on board their flights in cooperation with two service providers, Gogo and Viasat. Passengers can purchase internet packages from Delta in order to browse the web or stream media while flying. For frequent flyers of Delta airlines, there is a monthly subscription available that works with both providers.

How much is Wi-Fi on Delta?

Intelsat offers one-hour Wi-Fi passes for $7 on Delta flights. Viasat, on the other hand, charges a flat rate of $5 per flight per device regardless of destination or length of stay.

If you frequently fly with Delta and would prefer not to pay forWi-Fi separately each time, they offer two monthly internet plans: domestic and global. The rates are as follows:

  • Monthly domestic plan: $49.95
  • Monthly global plan:$69.95

Domestic travelers can purchase a monthly plan for access to all Wi-Fi enabled flights within the USA (as well as Canada and Mexico), while international customers have a similar global option. Subscribers may cancel at any time, and both Intelsat and Viasat providers are available.

Does Delta have free Wi-Fi?

Although Delta offers free Wi-Fi and entertainment for passengers, there are limits to what you can do. For example, messaging platforms Facebook Messenger, iMessage and WhatsApp are only included for the duration of the flight on all Wi-Fi-enabled routes. Additionally, movies, TV and games are available to passengers butDelta was ranked second in a recent NerdWallet analysis of the best airlines for in-flight entertainment.

T-Mobile and Sprint customers who have active accounts are eligible to use Delta’s in-flight connection for free.

If you have Magenta Max with T-Mobile or the Sprint Max plan with Sprint, then you’ll get unlimited full-flight Wi-Fi, streaming, and texting on all Delta flights. Magenta and Sprint One customers receive four sessions of full-flight internet per year as well as complimentary texting—after that it’s just one hour of complimentary Wi-Fi included per flight.
