In welcome news for travelers to Europe, Frankfurt Airport (FRA), one of the busiest airports in the world and a major hub for connections in Europe, has doubled complimentary WiFi Internet access time at the airport to 1 hour from 30 minutes previously.
The free Internet access is available throughout the airport’s passenger terminals and is considerably longer than the free Internet access at other major European airports.
Each user can benefit from the free WiFi Internet access once per day. The online session ends automatically after one hour with a timer continuously showing how much free time is still left.
Users can also choose to remain online after the free hour expires by purchasing a 24-hour Internet access ticket for €4.95 (about $6.80) with their credit card.
Frankfurt Airport has been ranked as the best European airport for business travelers by UK-based magazine Business Destinations.
Some other complimentary amenities at the airport include free rest areas with comfortable lounge-style chairs and power outlets, E-shuttles for the convenient transfer between terminals, six dedicated lounges for smokers, and lending of strollers to travelers with small children for use while in the airport.
The airport also offers fast transfers through dedicated fast lanes at security checkpoints for passengers on connecting flights with short transfer times.
Internet access at Frankfurt Airport is provided through the HotSpot portal of Deutsche Telekom, Germany’s largest telecommunications provider.
