Spain’s airport authority says it will start providing free and unlimited Wi-Fi in 46 airports across the country by the end of the year.

Airport authority AENA says its board has approved a plan that envisions making Spanish airports among Europe’s best for fast and free Wi-Fi service for passengers.

Free Wi-Fi is currently available in most Spanish airports but there’s a 30-minute usage limit.

AENA said in a statement Thursday that faster speeds will be offered, plus a premium service for passengers willing to pay for it.

The authority says it expects the new free Wi-Fi system will be available at airports toward the end of this year.

The U.N.’s World Tourism Organization says Spain is the No. 3 international tourism destination after France and the United States.
