Is Lima Airport WiFi Free? 2023

**Updated August 19, 2023

No matter your destination in Peru, you’ll need to pass through the Aeropuerto Internacional Jorge Chávez (Jorge Chavez International Airport). Fortunately, WiFi or Internet access at the Lima airport is completely free and hasn’t been restricted by any time limits since April 2021.

In the past, you could only connect to the free Internet at the airport for a maximum of 30 minutes. I’ve traveled through the Lima airport in Peru a few times since the change in April of last year and can confirm that there are no more restrictions on the free Internet. Just look for and connect to the network, .FreeAeropuertoGTD. In fact, if you’ve already connected to this network in the past, you’ll automatically connect in the future. When connected, you’ll see a pop-up where you just need to accept the terms and conditions to connect by clicking on the “Si estoy de acuerdo” (Yes, I agree) button.

Another option for free Internet in Peru at the Lima airport is at the sole Starbucks on the 2nd floor before entering the gates. Upon any purchase at Starbucks anywhere in Peru, the cashier will give you a little ticket along with your receipt that has the username and password for Starbucks’ own free WiFi. In very rare cases, the Starbucks cashier has forgotten to give me the ticket, so don’t feel shy about asking for WiFi access if you don’t get the ticket along with your receipt.

The national Peruvian Starbucks WiFi network is called RED_STB. When you connect, a popup should open on your computer or mobile phone that will ask for the username and password given to you on the ticket. If, for whatever reason, you don’t see the popup box, you can try accessing the network directly by going to this URL:
