Holiday travel season is upon us, and once again, Google is teaming up with the travel industry to offer free WiFi. Today, the Google Chrome browser team is announcing a partnership with AirTran, Delta and Virgin America, to provide free Gogo Inflight Internet to their passengers throughout the holiday season.
Travelers flying on AirTran, Delta or Virgin America between November 20, 2010 and January 2, 2011 will be able to access free Wi-Fi on domestic flights. In total, the deal brings wifi to more than 700 planes and 15 million expected passengers this holiday season.
Last year, Google had a similar partnership with Virgin America and extended free WiFi to 50 airports in the U.S. It looks like Google is once again partnering with airports to offer WiFi to travelers this holiday season. You can find the list of participating airports here.
If anything, the free WiFi is a great way to spread brand awareness of Google’s web browser Chrome.
