Depart BWI with Connectivity
Baltimore-Washington International Airport has finally caught up with the technological demands of today’s passengers. Last month, the airport introduced free wireless Internet access for travelers waiting at its gates. Previously, Internet access was only available at BWI to people willing to pay one-day fees for a few hours of use. That level of service still remains as an option, featuring greater bandwidth, the airport said, but now there will be a free tier of service, too. For the price of sitting through a brief commercial, travelers will be able to enjoy 45 minutes of Internet access. The move brings BWI up to speed with its regional competitors. Reagan Washington National and Dulles International added free wifi last year. It should also help legitimize BWI’s standing in a PC World ranking of the nation’s “techiest” airports.
