Google to Offer Free WiFi on Virgin Atlantic Flights

Whenever people travel on a plane, they get a perfect excuse to skip work, albeit for only sometime. However, Google thinks otherwise. Google has tied up with Virgin Atlantic, to offer free WiFi on flights across North America, during the holiday season.


The free WiFi will be available on all Virgin Atlantic flights between November 10, 2009 and January 15, 2010, when you are travelling within North America. Free WiFi will be available for Virgin Atlantic flights to the following destinations:

  • San Francisco, CA (SFO)
  • Boston, MA (BOS)
  • Fort Lauderdale, FL (FLL)
  • Las Vegas, NV (LAS)
  • Los Angeles, CA (LAX)
  • New York, NY (JFK)
  • Orange County, CA (SNA)
  • San Diego, CA (SAN)
  • Seattle, WA (SEA)
  • Washington Dulles (IAD)

Free WiFi on planes is not a new concept, as several other carriers offer paid WiFi on short and long distance flights. Will you fly Virgin Atlantic, just to make use of the free WiFi this holiday season?
