ATLANTA- Starting this month, Delta Air Lines (DL) is partnering with Walmart+ on Delta Sync Wi-Fi, providing customers with the convenience of in-flight shopping tailored to their preferences before they even land.
This opportunity to shop while flying, coupled with access to fast and free Wi-Fi, is another illustration of Delta’s commitment to offering SkyMiles Members additional ways to enhance their in-flight and overall travel experiences.
Delta Walmart Partnership for Holiday
Walmart+ takes the lead as the primary retailer on Delta Sync Wi-Fi, becoming the first brand to join the platform since its launch in April. Walmart+ joins other prominent brands like Paramount+, T-Mobile, New York Times Games, Resy, Atlas Obscura, and more, contributing to the enhancement of the in-flight experience.
Ranjan Goswami, S.V.P. – Customer Experience Design, remarked,
“By teaming up with Walmart+, we’re not only providing our SkyMiles Members with the convenience of shopping from the air but also ensuring they have access to even more before they touch down. The collaboration epitomizes Delta’s commitment to delivering an exceptional experience to our customers.”
Commencing this month, SkyMiles Members can log in to Delta Sync Wi-Fi to enroll in Walmart+ for $98, earning 2,500 bonus miles plus $10 off their first Walmart.com order.
Upon joining, customers can make the most of their time on board by exploring the comprehensive offerings of Walmart’s membership, including early access to holiday deals, free shipping, free delivery from Walmart stores, a complimentary Paramount+ subscription, fuel savings, and more.
Over the past 11 months since the CES 2023 announcement of fast, complimentary Wi-Fi presented by T-Mobile, Delta has executed an extensive rollout of connectivity on an unprecedented scale.
Customers have engaged in over 32 million streaming-quality sessions on Delta Sync Wi-Fi, seizing the opportunity to make the most of their travel time.
However, the provision of Wi-Fi across Delta’s global fleet is just one component of the broader strategy.
“We’re also intensely focused on leveraging this connectivity to deliver additional value to customers, aligning with their expressed preferences for in-flight activities,” noted Goswami.
“This focus is evident in our exclusive Delta Sync partnerships, with Walmart+ being the latest example. Through collaboration with leaders in various domains, we actively listen to customer feedback, providing people with more avenues to enjoy their travel experience, which will continue to evolve into a more robust and personalized offering over time.”
