(CNN)– Who says nothing’s free on planes anymore?

During the holiday season, Delta Air Lines, AirTran Airways and Virgin America are teaming up with Google to give travelers free in-flight Wi-Fi.

“Our holiday promotion with Google’s Chrome browser team allows us to offer our customers free Wi-Fi as a small token of appreciation,” said Tim Mapes, Delta’s senior vice president of marketing, in a statement.

The promotion on the three airlines will run from November 20 to January 2.

“These participating airlines have outfitted their entire domestic fleet with Gogo Inflight Wi-Fi, and we expect more connected passengers this holiday season than ever before!” Google Chrome wrote in an announcement.

Gogo Inflight passes cost from $4.95 to $12.95 per flight, depending on duration and distance.
