Delta Air Lines launched new in-flight entertainment options, including Delta Connect, an in-flight portal for all customers using Wi-Fi on Delta aircraft; wireless movies and television on demand on Boeing 757-300 aircraft; and a more user-friendly design for Airbus A330 in-flight entertainment systems that include more content choices.
"Whether through our mobile apps, Wi-Fi on soon to be more than 800 aircraft or a more comprehensive and customer-friendly delta.com experience, Delta is delivering," said Bob Kupbens, Delta’s vice president/eCommerce, in a statement.
Delta Connect is a new in-flight Wi-Fi portal developed jointly by Delta and its on-board wireless provider Gogo. It will offer an expanded range of free content for Delta customers such as more choices for entertainment and shopping as well as flight and destination information.
Delta is also launching a new feature through on-board Wi-Fi – entertainment on demand – available on all 16 of Delta’s Boeing 757-300 aircraft.
Customers flying on Delta’s total fleet of 32 Airbus A330 aircraft will experience a redesigned in-flight entertainment experience with more entertainment choices by the end of 2011. The improved in-flight entertainment system will expand to the rest of Delta’s fleet of nearly 300 aircraft equipped with personal in-flight entertainment by mid-2012.
