EU official crushes German airport’s WiFi Fee

EU official crushes German airport’s WiFi Fee

No more WiFi charges as passengers of Düsseldorf Airport can start enjoying free Internet next month.


Düsseldorf Airport is introducing 30-minute free WiFi service for passengers starting April — a huge step forward for passengers since current policies charge €6 per hour for Internet use.


What made airport management introduce the free service? Many believe two tweets by EU Commissioner for Digital Agenda Neelie Kroes are the key.


On Wednesday, the airport sparked the ire of Commissioner Kroes who commented that charging for WiFi at this age of connectivity is ‘thievery,’ especially since people already ‘pay huge charges to use airports.’ She added that the €6 per hour fee makes mobile roaming ‘look cheap.’


Other German airports that offer no free WiFi are Bremen, Stuttgart and Berlin (Tegel and Schönefeld). In contrast Munich and Nuremberg offer free 30-minute connection while Frankfurt am Main and Hamburg offer 60-minute free connection.


Cologne/Bonn airport is the most generous in Germany for offering free unlimited access.
