“Berlin Brandenburg Airport will offer its guests the most advanced amenities available,” said Ralf Kunkel of Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH. “Boingo Wireless will provide state-of-the-art Wi-Fi services that can expand to meet additional demand as the airport grows, and connectivity that our travelers can count on.”

Basic complimentary Wi-Fi services will allow passengers to engage in activities including email, posting to social networking sites and streaming audio, for up to 30 minutes per day after authenticating their identity with a valid credit or debit card. Travelers can also access premium Boingo Wi-Fi, enabling the use of data intensive applications, video streaming and large file uploading, via any of the company’s Wi-Fi plans.
Wi-Fi access plans available to Berlin Brandenburg travelers will include Boingo Europe Plus, providing unlimited access at more than 200,000 hotspots throughout the Europe, Middle East and Africa region for €27.95 per month, and Boingo Global, providing flat rate access anywhere in the world for €49 per month.
