From this week a dozen Spanish airports will offer travellers free Wi-Fi, a service that will be extended to all AENA operated airports by the end of the year.

The free service, which will be funded through advertising sales, is available at Adolfo Suarez Madrid-Barajas, Barcelona-El Prat, Palma de Mallorca, Málaga, Vigo, Santiago de Compostela, La Coruña, Tenerife Norte, Tenerife Sur, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura y Las Palmas.

But the state-operator AENA has said that all 46 airports and two heliports within Spain will be able to provide the service by the end of 2015, providing free Wi-Fi to an estimated 200 million passengers a year.

However, the free Wi-Fi service operated by Eurona Telecom will be limited to 2 megabytes of data for free with those wishing to upgrade to purchase 10 megabytes within a 24 hour period at a cost of €4.90.

Frequent flyers may wish to consider investing in the monthly package for €15.

The service will replace the Kubi Wireless currently on offer that provides free Wi-Fi for up to 45 minutes.
