The price of WiFi in UK airports

How much will it set you back if you want to get online before you get on-board in the UK?

New research from Airport Parking and Hotels (APH) has shown the high price of  WiFi in UK airports.

The research surveyed the UK’s largest 25 airports. 15 of those surveyed offered free WiFi throughout the terminals – Edinburgh, Aberdeen, London City and Stansted and were amongst these. But of these 15, only 5 offered unlimited time periods, with most only giving away 30 minutes of free access.

Flying out of Cardiff, Luton or Leeds is particularly costly, with the highest hourly rates for WiFi access at £5 an hour.

But Blackpool Airport is the worse place to fly from if you’re keen to check your emails or do some work before leaving the UK, as it doesn’t offer terminal WiFi access at all. That’s unless you book to use the Executive Airport Lounge at a cost of £16.

You may find that you need to grab a bite to eat or a pre-flight drink to log on before your flight. At Newcastle, WiFi is only available in certain bars & restaurants. And at Gatwick, unless you only need 15 minutes free access, McDonalds in the south Terminal is your best bet!
