Wireless Internet Access At Melbourne Airport

Wireless Internet Access At Melbourne Airport


Melbourne Airport now offers free Wi-Fi access throughout our terminals. Available in all public areas and aircraft gate lounges*, the free Wi-Fi hotspot includes Terminal 2, 3 and 4 (Qantas also provides a free Wi-Fi connection within Terminal 1).

* Gates 12-20 in Terminal 2 may experience a reduction in signal strength. If this occurs please move towards the main terminal area or consider using the paid Wi-Fi service.

Simply connect to the “FREE WIFI by MEL” network and answer a few short survey questions to commence your session. Please refer to our terms and conditions for Wi-Fi usage.

It is important to note that the free Wi-Fi service is not encrypted, so please consider the security of your personal information when using the free service.

To assist you in connecting to the free Wi-Fi, we recommend the below:
