JetBlue To Offer Free In-Flight Wi-Fi In 2013

LONDON (CBS NEWS) – Internet addicts may have incentive to book a flight on JetBlue Airways in 2013. The airline is planning to offer free in-flight Wi-Fi.

JetBlue announced Monday at the Low Cost Carrier conference in London that the airline plans to launch its first Wi-Fi-enabled aircraft in the first quarter.

In a statement given to CBS News via email, the company says it will offer free basic Wi-Fi services until the service is installed on 30 airplanes.

JetBlue could not release any further details on how long the roll out will take, as much of it depends on testing that is underway. A spokesperson for the airline also said that it was too early to determine if the company will eventually charge a fee for in-flight Wi-Fi.
