LaGuardia, JFK Getting Free Wi-fi At Last

Travelers to and from the region’s airports, including LaGuardia and John F. Kennedy in Queens, will now have free unlimited wi-fi for the first time. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey announced high-speed access of up to four hours at the four airports under its jurisdiction.

“The Port Authority has a goal to develop world-class airports and operate them at the highest level of service and quality,” said authority chairman Kevin O’Toole. “With trending passenger growth across our airports, connecting to a free Wi-Fi network is not just an enhancement in customer service, but also an improvement in efficiency for our business and leisure travelers.”

The authority called the upgraded wi-fi access—previously available at other airports across the U.S.—“a major improvement from past practice.” Customer surveys have continually put free high-speed wi-fi high on the lists of what passengers seek in terms of improved airport amenities.
