Some holiday travelers will inevitably be stuck at the airport due to flight delays and cancellations while everyone else celebrates the festive season, but the Skype airport service offers a way to alleviate this unfortunate situation. The Internet video-calling company, which was acquired by Microsoft earlier this year, has partnered up with 50 US airports to offer travelers free Wi-Fi connection so that they may call their friends and family members between flights.

Available at special Skype Wi-Fi hotspots in the airports, the Skype airport service will run from December 21 to 27 and allow travelers to connect to those on their Skype friends lists for a free, one-hour video or phone conversation. The full list of participating airports can be found on the interactive map on Skype's blog. Stats for Free Holiday Video Greetings Trending: Older & Chilly
