When it comes to aviation travel the past several years, so much has changed, however I think the most exciting improvement we’ve seen is WiFi onboard, allowing travelers to stay connected at 35,000 feet. JetBlue announced that they want to be able to offer free high-speed internet on all their flights, and have no plans on charging for the service.

They currently offer it on most of their planes, but by next fall their entire fleet should offer the service free of charge.

Per JetBlueJetBlue today announced it has passed two major milestones on its path to becoming the only U.S. carrier to offer free high-speed Wi-Fi Internet on every aircraft.

JetBlue has completed installation of Fly-Fi on its fleet of more than 150 Airbus A320 and A321 aircraft, and its first Fly-Fi-enabled E190 made its official inaugural flight this week. The airline anticipates it will complete the installation of Fly-Fi on all 60 of its E190s by fall 2016, at which point it will have completed installation of Fly-Fi on the entire JetBlue fleet.

Bottom Line

It’s nice to see JetBlue expanding its free WiFi offering to all of its planes. If you’re hoping that other airlines such as Delta, United, American offer free WiFi, I think that would be highly unlikely anytime soon.
