Stansted Airport is to introduce free Wi-Fi for passengers from today (April 1).
The move, by new owners Manchester Airports Group, will mean passengers can get a free 60 minutes of Wi-Fi before their flight.
Users only need to register once for the service, after which their smartphone, tablet or laptop will be recognised on future visits to the airport.
Stansted’s terminal manager, Neil Banks, said: “We live in a modern mobile world where accessing the internet on smart phones, tablets and laptops is now a daily routine.
“As part of our drive to improve services for passengers we’re delighted to offer one hour free Wi-Fi throughout the terminal, enabling customers to get those last minute emails, conference calls and social media updates done before taking flight.
“The new service will also be particularly convenient for UK residents not on 3G or 4G mobile contracts and for overseas visitors who would otherwise incur expensive roaming costs.”
