File exchange using airport compared to airdrop?

I work where the Wifi data is counted by Computer and am wondering if this will allow file transfer without affecting my Mac data count or does it work in the same way as airdrop to where it needs to use data off the Wifi signal as well?

  • You seem to be asking if there is a bluetooth wireless radio provided in the airport express.
    No - bluetooth to avoid Wifi.
    The airport express only has a wifi radio supporting the wifi radio communication protocols.
    You need to look into bluetooth radios that support peer to peer file sharing without use of the LAN and wifi.
