Delta is to make all in-flight entertainment available on its Delta Studio platform free to access for all passengers on two-class aircraft by July 1.
The US carrier says it will be the only US airline to offer all in-flight entertainment for free.
The Delta Studio offering is available on 90 per cent of the carrier’s fleet, with streaming to personal devices possible on 1,000 aircraft, and a further 400 equipped with seatback systems.
Entertainment is already free on all international flights in every cabin, but Main Cabin passengers on domestic services currently have to pay for “premium entertainment”.
Delta Studio offers up to 300 movies, 750 TV shows, 2,400 songs, and 18 channels of live satellite TV (available on over 240 aircraft).
Commenting on the move Tim Mapes, Delta’s Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer said:
“The only thing better than operating the world’s largest in-flight entertainment-equipped fleet is providing it free to all our guests.
“Our commitment is to provide Delta customers with the industry’s best on-board services – period.”
Delta Airlines recently announced plans to expand its wifi offering on international flights with a continued partnership with GoGo.
