Southwest Airlines is excited to offer satellite-enabled Wi-Fi internet access onboard. The service is currently on four aircraft, but we hope to begin equipping more of the fleet with this cutting-edge technology in early 2010.
With this innovation, we are giving Customers with Wi-Fi-enabled devices the freedom to be more productive and to stay entertained while they fly with full access to the Internet, including e-mail, music, shopping, and virtual private networks (VPN). Internet access will be available for a moderate charge, determined by the distance you are traveling and the device you are using to get online. We are still working out various aspects of this product, so if you are on one of our Wi-Fi planes, we may be asking for your feedback!
