Skype outs free airport WiFi offer for holiday travelers

Skype is offering free airport WiFi access in more than 50 locations between December 21 and 27, promising an hour's worth of complementary browsing, VoIP calling or video chatting for holiday travelers. The offer uses Skype WiFi, the company's wireless connectivity system, to log into airport hotspots across the US.

Skype is, unsurprisingly, hoping that users will take advantage of that WiFi access to make a voice or video call. However, if you'd rather just check Facebook, send a few tweets or even check the latest tech headlines on SlashGear, you'll be able to do that too.

The full list of participating airports is below, and you'll need the latest version of Skype for Windows, Mac or iOS in order to get online free. Those outside of the US are out of luck, however.
