Laptop users taking a flight with Flybe will have access this summer to wireless broadband from BT Openzone at six of the airline's UK lounges.

Holidaymakers will be able to browse the internet via Wi-Fi while they wait for their flights with the carrier from Belfast, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Exeter, Gatwick and Glasgow.

The new service, which is initially being rolled out at half of all of Flybe's lounges, will be free for 4.8 million BT broadband customers with inclusive Wi-Fi minutes, BT Openzone customers and certain O2 mobile broadband subscribers.

Other travellers will be able to buy a BT Openzone voucher in order to use wireless broadband while waiting to board their flights.

"Business travellers want to be productive before their flights and holidaymakers are armed with wireless devices," said Chris Bruce, General Manager of BT Openzone.

"With access in the UK, plus overseas hotspots, we're providing more Wi-Fi where travellers want it, allowing them to keep in touch on the move."

In June, BT Openzone opened a new Wi-Fi broadband hotspot at the recently opened SkyTeam lounge in Heathrow's Terminal 4 building.
