For those passengers who like to stay connected to the Internet to access e-mail, get in on the latest news, or see if a friend posted something new on social networks, good news. Since the end of last week, some airports are offering free and unlimited connection to the internet through wi-fi spots in the boarding area.
Currently there are nine airports that are already providing access to the web: Pampulha (Belo Horizonte), Congonhas and Guarulhos (Sao Paulo), Galeão and Santos Dumont (Rio de Janeiro), Brasilia, Porto Alegre, Recife and Fortaleza.
To gain access via their smartphones, tablets and notebooks, users must connect to the network “INFRAERO wi-fi grátis” and make a registration containing personal information and the number of your boarding pass.
As the system is still in testing phase the only limitation that exists is the number of simultaneously connected users, which is 500 in Guarulhos and 600 in Congonhas.
The goal of Infraero is to provide free Internet access in all Brazilian airports, with priority for those who find themselves in the host cities of the World Cup 2014.
