Wi-Fi is no longer considered a privilege, but a right that passengers are beginning to expect will be available for free.
Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport plans to begin offering free Wi-Fi service next year through a two-step process. Starting Thursday, the airport will lower its daily rate to $4.95. The fees will be eliminated by next fall.
“Free Wi-Fi will make it easier for … passengers to conduct their professional and personal business during their time at the airport,” Aviation General Manager Louis Miller said in a prepared statement.
