Google`s holiday gift: free in-flight Wi-Fi
San Francisco: Google is offering free in-flight Wi-Fi access to an estimated 15 million passengers this holiday season, the company announced Monday.
The gesture by the web-search giant will be offered on all internal US flights operated by Delta, Virgin America and Air-Tran. The three carriers recently outfitted their fleets with airborne Wi-Fi capabilities offered by the company Gogo Inflight Wi-Fi, which usually charges between $11 and $13 for 24 hours of airborne Wi-Fi access.
Last year Google sponsored free Wi-Fi in 50 US airports. This year the gift will be sponsored by the company`s Chrome browser and will be available on all AirTran, Delta and Virgin America flights from Nov 20 through Jan 2, 2011.
