Airport wi-fi

Research carried out by Airport Parking and Hotels (APH) has been published which compares the availability and cost of wi-fi access across 25 major UK airports.

The survey found 22 of them now offer free (but sometimes limited) wi-fi access, compared to 15 last year, with Aberdeen, Belfast City, Birmingham, London City and Norwich all allowing an unlimited service throughout the airport.  From the remaining airports surveyed, three were found to allow up to 60 minutes and nine airports up to 30 minutes freetime.

Airports which offer initial courtesy access include Belfast International, Cardiff, Exeter, Glasgow, Heathrow, Luton, Manchester, Southampton and Stansted.  The Cardiff Arqiva branded system was found to charge the lowest hourly rate at £3 per hour, after the complimentary allowance has been used up, as well as only £9 for 24 hours unlimited use.

Blackpool Airport does not offer any wi-fi access in the terminal and passengers must book into the Executive Airport Lounge for internet access, at a cost of £16 per person.   www.aph.com
