Airport News: Free Wifi at Paris Airports in July

Charles de Gaulle airport, Paris

Good news for travelers to Paris. Starting in July, the Parisian airports—both Charles de Gaulle (Roissy) and Orly—will offer free wireless Internet. This is a first for a hub in Europe, and is part of a campaign to boost tourism. No password will be necessary, and the service is unlimited. (For serious business travelers who want to do more than just check email, it will also be possible to purchase a different data plan.) “Our standards for welcoming passengers have to be at the highest possible level,” explained Augustin de Romanet, CEO of Aéroports de Paris, which manages the Paris airports. “Offering free, unlimited wifi sends a strong message to that effect.”

Charles de Gaulle is celebrating its 40th birthday in 2014, and Aéroports de Paris continues to improve services and shopping found within all terminals. Charles de Gaulle is now one of the biggest airports in the world, serving more than 60 million passengers every year and 150 different airlines. For more information, visit
