Athens airport launches free wi fi
Athens airport has introduced free wi fi. Not having flown to the Greek capital for some time this development escaped my notice - they didn't exactly trumpet it - which enables passengers to access the internet in all areas through the "ATH Free" network. Good news. It can't be repeated too often or loudly enough: other airports which haven't already done so, please copy. According to research company GfK Ascent, package holiday bookings to Greece in the year to July were up 2% despite the recent panic sparked by the country's economic crisis. That figure is likely to look healthier when bookings for the entire summer are included, especially since Tunisia was declared off limits.
