CNet is reporting that Delta will add WiFi service to some of its flights in 2009. Initially available on shuttle flights, long-term plans are to make WiFi available on all 330 planes in Delta’s domestic fleet. Expect to pay $10 on flights up to 3 hours, and $13 on flights over 3 hours.
Delta has selected AirCell to provide the signal, but other companies, like Row44, are offering WiFi solutions to airlines, too. American Airlines, JetBlue and Virgin Atlantic all have plans in the works to put WiFi onto airplanes, so Delta’s announcement comes as no real surprise.
