Airports With Wi Fi Access

Thu Dec 11, 2003 3:59 am

I was down by baggage claim in CVG waiting for my ride, turned on my laptop and had a wireless connection. I didn't know that there was WiFi Access in the CVG airport, and it was free. I know MSP charges and so does XNA. Anyone know of other airprots that have this service, free or charged?

I believe several airlines offer it in their private lounges. Maybe you're tapping into that signal.

XJFA:

Bizzarre @ CVG, as there is no DL Crown Room close to baggage claim. Was it in Terminal 3? DL,NW,ACA,Comair Baggage Claim?

LAN airport has complimentary WiFi and Wired access.

SAV airport has complimentary Wired access.

Even Grand Forks (GFK) way up in North Dakota has wi-fi access. Of course, as with just about every airport, it's fee-based.

ATL has it is several locations. Besides the Delta Crown Rooms, I know that AirTran has it available in most of their gate areas on C as well.

AUS was one of the first airports in the US to offer WiFi. Wayport, a pioneering company in WiFi, is based in Austin.

DFW also has Wayport service (for which a fee is charged), and most AA Admiral's Club locations have the T-mobile WiFi service.

Personally, if I were paying $300 or $400 per year for a club membership, I'd expect complimentary WiFi. It's not that expensive, and it's super-convenient. In fact, depending on the size of the room, it can be less expensive than wired access.
