Free Wi-Fi service now available NAIA Airport terminalsPosted on March 1st, 2012 under Technology Milestones
Globe Telecom, in partnership with the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA), launched yesterday free wireless fidelity (WiFi) access for passengers in four domestic and international airports.
The free WiFi will allow passengers to work online, check email or travel itineraries, and surf the Internet while waiting for their flights.
The Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) is one of the busiest airports in the world.
In 2010, the airport served over 27 million travelers, and an additional 18 million flew domestic routes.
Gil Genio, head of the international and business markets of Globe Telecom, said Globe recognizes the increasing need of people to stay connected and in touch whether via mobile phone or the internet.
“As we modernize our network and deliver faster broadband service, we are giving back to the Filipino people by powering the gateway to the Philippines with free WiFi service,” he said.
Vicente Guerzon, MIAA assistant general manager for security and emergency services, said they are happy to have the support of partners like Globe Telecom in making the airport one of the best in the world.
Present at the launching at the NAIA Terminal 1 lobby were Guerzon, lawyer Cecilio Bautista, assistant general manager for airport development, Genio and Rizza Maniego Eala, head international business group.
