Skyscanner’s Guide to Airport WiFi

Skyscanner arms travellers with a guide to WiFi at Europe's busiest airports

If you’ve ever been stuck at an airport, you’ll know it can be a dull place, 71% of international travellers* consider free WiFi at airports either important or extremely important. Skyscanner has therefore compared the costs of WiFi at Europe’s busiest airports and listed the results.

Whether it’s to download a film before your flight, keep in touch with friends and family – like 33% of international travellers – or to update your social media feed with pictures from your trip, 96% of international travellers agree airports should provide free WiFi.

If you’re travelling to Turkey, France, Italy, Russia or Germany you will be glad to know that most of their main airports offer unlimited free WiFi. Unfortunately UK Airports flail in comparison with only Birmingham and London City airports giving travellers free unlimited WiFi and Europe’s busiest airport, London Heathrow, only offering travellers a mere 45 minutes free Wi-Fi connection.

To prepare travellers with what to expect when passing through Europe’s 50 busiest airports** Skyscanner has put together an easy to read guide to airport WiFi below, along with a guide to UK airports’ WiFi offering.
