Travelers at NYC airports to get free WiFi

July 9, 2014 |

Wireless provider Boingo and The Port Authority of New York reached an agreement to provide travelers at New York City-area airports with 30 minutes of free WiFi. According to Bloomberg, the airports, which service more than 100 million passengers each year, are John F. Kennedy International, Newark Liberty International, LaGuardia and Stewart International.

The source stated that when the 30-minute session is up, users will have the option of purchasing additional access for a price that has not yet been released.

“We’ve worked hard with Boingo to make changes that will significantly improve our customers’ experience at our airports,” Port Authority executive director Patrick Foye said in a news release.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo hopes the move will help to improve the customer service image at LaGuardia International Airport, a hub that is notorious for its low-ranking service. According to Bloomberg, the airport was ranked the worst in the U.S. for four consecutive years for customers service.
