Free wi-fi is coming to the New York City metro area's major airports.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey on Wednesday approved a plan to offer free access at Newark Liberty International, John F. Kennedy International and LaGuardia airports, to a point.

Wi-fi would be free for 30 minutes. Then travellers would have to pay US$7.95 (NZ$9.10) for the day. The Port Authority says the free service could be available as early as this fall.

It currently costs travellers US$4.95 an hour or US$7.95 for 24 hours to access the Internet at the airports, which are among the nation's busiest.

The airport advocacy group Global Gateway Alliance says the plan is similar to many used at airports around the country, though some airports do offer unlimited wi-fi.
