Delta Air Lines announced Wednesday that it will become the first carrier to install Wi-Fi in its entire mainline and two-class regional fleet or more than 800 aircraft.
To mark the decision, Delta launched a flight of a Wi-Fi-equipped regional jet, flown by Delta Connections partner Atlantic Southeast Airlines, from Atlanta on Wednesday morning, with stops in Omaha, Neb.; Des Moines, Iowa; and White Plains, N.Y.
The company, which has a major hub in Salt Lake City where partner airline SkyWest handles numerous regional flights, said in a statement it would complete Wi-Fi installations on Delta Connection jets by early next year.
"Once complete, all customers flying on Delta domestic flights with a first-class cabin will enjoy Wi-Fi access," the statement said.
