The Helsinki-Vantaa airport, Finlands largest, has finally gotten free WiFi that covers the entire airport. About time.
A small cost for the aiport that will greatly improve how many travelers experience waiting for their flights. Finavia, the former Finnish Civil Aviation Administration, that runs the airport pays for the service so that it is free for its customers.
Now it's only another 10-20 years and we'll have WiFi on the actual flights as well...
Hi. My name is Sarantugs. I'm a student studying at the International School of Ulaanbaatar. I'm Mongolian myself and i'm a sophomore. This year in order to graduate we have to complete a project called the Personal Project. For my project, I chose to do a photo exhibition, displaying how Mongolia has developed and changed over the years. I found some of your photos very useful and would love to use it for my project. May i have permission to do so? This project is only for schoolwork and is not for any type of profit. . Thank you.
Or hopefully only 1-2 years to have WiFi on the flight. http://www.economist.com/blogs/gulliver/2008/12/delta_aircell_will_amtrak_be_next.cfm
Unfortunately it is only possible to use Aircell's "Gogo Inflight Internet" on airplanes flying over North America since Aircell makes use of special cell phone base stations in the United States, Canada and Mexico. So far, there are no suitable base stations anywhere else in the world and the system will not work when flying over the Atlantic.
Other, satellite based systems, are bigger, more expensive and more difficult to install.
Sounds like some great travels in Finland. Where you able to find a lot of free wifi? I am putting together listings of wifi hotspots in Finland. I already have a bunch in Helsinki, but if you have more to add please do (its a wiki) - http://freewifiwiki.net/index.php?title=Finland
Thanks for your information. I have found lots of free wifi hotstops throughout Helsinki, Finland. Hope this will help you.
