DENVER (CBS4)- Travelers flying in and out of Denver International Airport have the ability to make domestic and international phone calls free of charge.
The free, ad-supported service, is called RMT Free Phone. It is accessible at more than 200 landline phones located throughout Jeppesen Terminal and all three concourses at DIA.
DIA is the first airport in the world to offer free global calling.
More than 50 million passengers a year travel through DIA. Now they have access to unlimited, local and national calls free of charge. All international calls will be free of charge for the first 10 minutes, calls lasting longer than 10 minutes will be charged at the rate of 25 cents per minute and 15 percent tax.
“This is another example of how Denver International Airport continuously looks for ways to enhance the customer experience and provide world-class service,” said DIA Chief Commercial Officer John Ackerman.
“While mobile phone usage has increased over the years, there is still a significant population who may not have access to a mobile phone because they do not own one, are traveling abroad, or their phone needs to be recharged. This new service offers travelers the ability to call most areas of the world for free, connecting customers with loved ones and business partners around the globe.”
The phones are equipped with a 17-inch screen which allows advertisers to promote their products airport-wide with 15-second digital advertisements.
