eBay has partnered with Delta Airlines to offer passengers free Gogo Inflight Internet service on all Wi-Fi equipped flights from November 24-30.

Delta says its has 260 Wi-Fi enabled airplanes flying more than 1,000 flights each day, and during the Thanksgiving promotion it expects more than 1 million customers will access the service.

"Operating the world’s largest fleet of Wi-Fi-enabled aircraft, Delta offers new ways to thank our customers for their loyalty and provide them new products and services with partners like eBay," said Ranjan Goswami, Delta’s director – Customer Experience.

"Delta’s Thanksgiving promotion with eBay marks the first time we have been able to extend in-flight Internet access as a sponsored benefit to our customers."

Delta said it is working on equipping more than 300 aircraft with Wi-Fi by the end of 2009. An additional 200 pre-merger Northwest aircraft are on schedule to be Wi-Fi enabled by mid-2010.

Greg-Fant "eBay’s partnership with Delta Air Lines will showcase to a million-plus holiday travelers the amazing value, and unparalleled selection that eBay offers shoppers every day," said Greg Fant, eBay vice president of marketing. "This year marks the largest integrated holiday season campaign eBay has created."

Google announced last week that it would make free Wi-Fi available at 47 U.S. airports during the holidays. Google also partnered with Virgin America to offer free Wi-Fi on flights during the holidays through January 15, 2010.
