One-hour Free Wi-Fi at London Stansted

One-hour Free Wi-Fi at London Stansted

Stansted Airport’s new owner, Manchester Airports Group, has introduced a new ‘free for 60 minutes’ wi-fi service for passengers throughout the terminal – and had also secured a new airline in Air Moldova.

London Stansted Airport

Neil Banks, Stansted’s Terminal Manager, said: “We live in a modern mobile world where accessing the Internet on smartphones, tablets and laptops is now a daily routine. As part of our drive to improve services for passengers we are delighted to offer one hour free wi-fi throughout the terminal, enabling customers to get those last-minute emails, conference calls and social media updates done before taking flight.

“The new service will also be particularly convenient for UK residents not on 3G or 4G mobile contracts and for overseas visitors who would otherwise incur expensive roaming costs.”

Air Moldova

Air Moldova will move its UK flight operations from London Gatwick to Stansted commencing 29th April 2013, operating direct to Chisinau International Airport twice a week (Friday and Monday) and connecting passengers to the heart of the Moldovian capital.

Andrew Harrison, Stansted Airport’s Managing Director, said: “When MAG took ownership of Stansted Airport at the end of February we set out ambitious plans to attract new airlines and grow the range of destinations, so I am delighted that Air Moldova is the first new airline to move their services to Stansted.

“Stansted has fantastic facilities and great on time performance. To build on this record, we have significant investment plans – including £40 million to upgrade the terminal and security areas – to transform the experience for our passengers and make the airport more attractive to airlines looking to move into or expand in London.
