Delta Air Lines has completed the roll-out of wi-fi on its international fleet, enabling all customers flying on its daily non-stop service between Johannesburg and Atlanta to stay connected at 30,000 feet.
The final Boeing 777 – one of a number serving South Africa – has now been equipped and is back in service. It marks a new milestone for the airline with all African services – including Lagos, Dakar and Accra – offering on-demand wi-fi throughout the aircraft.
Delta’s wi-fi is powered by Ku-Band satellite technology and provided by Gogo. Laptop passes are available from $6.95 for one hour’s usage or a global day pass can be purchased in advance of a flight for $28. Customers also enjoy free access to the airline’s on-demand entertainment system Delta Studio, which includes in-flight streaming to view movies and TV shows on mobile devices.
