Travel News Asia Monday, 4 December 2006

PCCW and Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) are proving they do listen to travelers needs by launching free Wi-Fi Internet access throughout the entire airport.

This move represents the largest wireless broadband coverage available at a major international airport, with wall-to-wall service accessible throughout the Hong Kong International Airport passenger terminal building.

All airport users, including passengers, well-wishers and meeters and greeters, will be able to enjoy free Internet access in every part of the airport via Wi-Fi-enabled laptops, pocket PCs, mobile phones, gaming consoles and other handheld devices. According to a recent study, over 50% of airport users carry a laptop.

PCCW Consumer Group Managing Director Tom Chan said, Wi-Fi Internet access has been available at the airport since 2003 but by extending coverage and offering service free to users, we are conveying an important message to all travelers about Hong Kongs determination to be a regional leader in Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) and innovation.

Throughout December, airport users will also enjoy free access to a stylish Wi-Fi Zone in Arrival Hall A. Designed to offer a comfortable and convenient environment for wireless Internet use, this area will offer free use of Wi-Fi notebook computers, as well as workstation facilities for wireless Internet use.

Airport Authority Hong Kong Commercial Director Hans Bakker said, December is a peak traveling season, and an opportune moment to show the world just how connected you can be in Hong Kong.

 Over 70% of airport users expressed that they are likely to use the free wireless Internet connection service here. By providing the latest technologies, such as Wi-Fi Internet access throughout the airport, we are extending the enjoyment and convenience aspects of the traveling experience offered by HKIA, he added.

The PCCW Wi-Fi network provides a convenient and stable environment for airport users to send and receive email, surf the Internet and even run high-speed applications. PCCW Wi-Fi supports a full range of notebooks, PDAs, smartphones and gaming devices to give travelers hassle-free Internet connectivity while on the move.
