Delta Air Lines now offers free Wi-Fi on most domestic flights, making it the first major airline in the U.S. to offer free in-flight internet access. In a partnership with T-Mobile, over 500 aircraft serving Delta’s most popular routes, such as flights to Atlanta, Boston, and Minneapolis-St. Paul, are outfitted with fast-streaming satellite connectivity.

“Our vision has long been to deliver an experience at 30,000 feet that feels similar to what our customers have available on the ground,” Delta Air Lines CEO Ed Bastian says in a prepared statement.

Customers can determine if their flight has free Wi-Fi by a sticker near the airplane’s boarding door and can connect to the service via their SkyMiles account.
