Easier access to free wi-fi at Copenhagen Airport

Passengers are now only required to enter their email address and select the country they come from

Copenhagen Airport has made it easier for visitors to access its free wireless internet network, Politiken reports.

Only email and country of origin required
After selecting the CPH HOTSPOT network, visitors are only asked to enter their email address and the country they come from.

Until today, a registration to the benefit program Advantage was required.

Passengers then had to enter personal information and receive a confirmation before they were eventually allowed access to the airport’s wifi network.

Nine out of ten passengers carry a smartphone
Last year more than 25 million people travelled through the airport, with an average of 70,000 passengers a day.

Considering that nine out of ten passengers carry a smartphone or have tablets and laptops packed in their hand luggage while traveling, the Copenhagen Airport decided to simplify the process.

According to Peter Krogsgaard, the commercial director at Copenhagen Airport, demand for wireless internet, especially among business people, has been huge.

CPH Airport network can handle 100,000 log-ins
Krogsgaard claims the airport’s free internet network will handle the extra pressure during summer holidays and passengers have “no reason to fear a slow or unstable connection”.

“Even on a busy day, 100,000 people can log on to our network,” Krogsgaard told Politiken.

Copenhagen Airport has been offering free public internet access since 2011.
