Last year, the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) was named as one of the world’s worst airports. The local government, since then, has been looking for ways on how to improve the features and services that the airport currently offer.
To help in uplifting NAIA’s image in the world’s perspective, Globe Telecom, carrier of the country’s number broadband brand – Tattoo, partners with the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) to offer free Wireless Fidelity (WiFi) access to all passengers of NAIA, NAIA Terminals 2 and 3, and the Manila Domestic Airport.
The free WiFi offering will benefit millions of domestic and international passengers for this will maximize everyone’s time while inside the airport. Travelers can work online, check emails or travel itineraries, and surf the net while waiting for their flights.
“Globe recognizes the increasing need for people to stay connected and in touch, whether it’s via a 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,” said Gil Genio, Head of the International & Business Markets of Globe Telecom.
“As we continue to make improvements on the NAIA terminals, we are happy to have the support of partners like Globe Telecom to help us transform our airport into one of the best in the world. It is through private-public partnerships, such as that of the MIAA and Globe were we can make greater strides in improving public service,” said MIAA General Manager Jose Angel Honrado.
