In-flight WiFi company Gogo now offers Delta and Virgin America customers free access to eBay

In-flight connectivity service provider Gogo this morning announced that it has signed up a new partner for its digital multimedia platform. Starting today, passengers of both Delta Air Lines and Virgin America will get free access to e-commerce juggernaut eBay.

Ebay joins a list of Gogo partners that includes Amazon.com (as well as Zappos.com), StubHub, OpenTable and Hotel Tonight, among others.

The deal with eBay allows Delta and Virgin America passengers to shop the self-reportedly more than 300 million listings on the site while above 10,000 feet.

Gogo late last year filed for a $100 million IPO.

The company says it currently enables passengers to go online on more than 1,500 commercial aircraft, including all domestic AirTran Airways and Virgin America flights, all domestic mainline Delta Air Lines flights and select Air Canada, Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Frontier Airlines, United Airlines, and US Airways flights.

But come on, seriously, does anyone want to shop on eBay during a flight?
