Airport operator Dubai Airports has rolled out unlimited free wi-fi for passengers at Dubai International and Dubai World Central airports in the UAE.

Passengers can now connect to the new service with only one click thanks to a simplified landing page. To ensure the speed and reliability of the new service, Dubai Airports has invested in more than 6,000 new wi-fi access points to upgrade the entire wireless network infrastructure across both airports, and enhanced the internet links to over 5Gbps to provide the required bandwidth capacity. New web applications have also been developed for each terminal and concourse to improve information for passengers.

Michael Ibbitson, executive vice president of business technology at Dubai Airports, said, “As the world’s largest international hub we are the heart of many journeys across the world today. 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. To enable this, Dubai Airports has invested heavily in developing a state of the art infrastructure to deliver industry leading wi-fi capabilities.”
