More than 6,000 new Wi-Fi access points have been established for the upgrade
Unlimited Free Wi-Fi at Dubai’s airports Passengers can now enjoy unlimited free highspeed Wi-Fi at both Dubai International and Dubai World Central after Dubai Airports rolled out the upgraded service last month. The unlimited Wi-Fi only takes one click to connect thanks to a simplified landing page and offers speeds that set a benchmark in airports worldwide. In fact, Dubai Airports has invested in more than 6,000 new Wi-Fi access points
as part of the upgrade and enhanced the internet links to over 5Gbps for the best bandwidth capacity – that’s enough the power a small city. “We are the heart of many journeys across the world today [and] when our passengers arrive in Dubai after a long journey they now expect to keep in touch with friends and family all over the world,” said Michael Ibbitson, Dubai Airports Executive Vice
President of Business Technology. “This is just one of many initiatives we have undertaken to serve and delight the 83 million passengers that will pass through our airports this year.” The upgrade follows extensive research in passenger expectations, which was capped off by the successful completion of a four-month pilot project launched at Concourse D in July last year.
