Flights can be boring at times. Being stuck in a metal container for hours on end can be a nightmare for some, which is why there is in-flight entertainment that helps you pass the time. But what if you’re not a fan of the in-flight movies? That’s where you can bring your own entertainment on your phones or tablets.
The good news is that if you just want to listen to some tunes and while the time away, you’ll be happy to hear that for this holiday season, Delta Airlines and Spotify are teaming up to offer free music streaming. This offer will last until the 19th of January, 2022, so you’ll have a little over a month to take advantage of this feature if you plan to travel anywhere using Delta during this period.
Delta and Spotify previously had a partnership in which Spotify’s music and podcasts would be available for free through Delta’s own in-flight entertainment system, but with this announcement, you will be able to stream through your own device. All users need to do is connect to Delta’s in-flight WiFi and launch Spotify and they’re good to go.
The only catch is that your Delta flight needs to be with an aircraft that has been equipped with Viasat for internet connectivity, and since not all aircrafts have that feature, your mileage may vary. However, in the event that it doesn’t, you still have Delta’s previous Spotify partnership to fall back on.
