Edinburgh Airport gets new Wi-Fi connection

Wed, 03 Feb, 2010

Edinburgh Airport is to offer passengers Wi-Fi cover from provider Boingo, it has been announced.

The American company is to install wireless internet in the airport, in a deal which sees it become the exclusive Wi-Fi provider to five other UK terminals.

Travellers in London can access Boingo Wi-Fi at Heathrow and Stansted.

Meanwhile, people waiting for their flights in Aberdeen Airport and Southampton Airport can also access the internet connection.

Previously, the internet connection to the six hubs was provided by several suppliers, including Boingo, before it was selected as the sole source.

Ian Denchfield, head of commercial telecoms for BAA, the group which owns the six airports, said: "The company's dedication to world-class customer service and neutral host roaming made them the obvious choice."

This new Wi-Fi access announcement comes as Edinburgh Airport opens its new departures lounge, which is part of a huge redevelopment of the terminal which is expected to be completed in 2013.
