I’m a firm believer that wireless Internet access should be a basic free amenity at every airport. Especially since travelers are asked to show up hours early for a flight and are often made to wait around hours longer due to weather, mechanical issues or who knows what.
So, I’m delighted to learn that beginning early in 2010, when the contract with the current Wi-Fi provider runs out, Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) will join the growing number of airports that offer travelers free wireless Internet access in the terminals.
Earlier this year, Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC) announced that they’d be doing the same.
Let’s hope this is a trend!
