Frankfurt Airport in Germany has introduced a free Wi-Fi service to cater to increasing passenger traffic during the peak travel season.

Operated by Fraport, the airport has installed over 300 Wi-Fi access points, specifically in the departure areas, to expand the access from 60mins to 24 hours.

Passengers and visitors can connect to the internet through the HotSpot Internet portal of Deutsche Telekom. They will also have the option to extend their free Wi-Fi access for a further 24 hours.

Fraport COO Peter Schmitz said: "We are the first major airport in Germany and one of the first in Europe to offer passengers this level of free Wi-Fi service. Frankfurt Airport is dedicated to meeting the needs of its increasingly mobile and networked customers."
