Google To Spread Holiday Cheer With Free Inflight WiFi

Free Inflight WifiIf you are planning on a travel heavy holiday season, Google might have just added some cheer to your holiday plans. Google announced today that it is partnering with Airtran, Delta and Virgin America to bring free inflight wifi service. The service, typically provided by GoGo Inflight Internet, costs $11 for a 24 hour pass.

The giveaway will last from November 20, 2010 to January 2, 2011, and is being sponsored by Chrome, Google’s increasingly popular browser. 

This is the second year in a row that Google is providing free wifi during the holiday season. However, unlike last year, airports will not be covered in this year’s giveaway.

There’s another compelling reason to wish for shorter layovers!
