This week Newcastle Airport turned on its fully upgraded public WiFi service, giving passengers another reason to choose the airport as their point A when they next fly.
The completely new system provides improved WiFi speeds and coverage throughout the entire terminal and, best of all, is completely free.
The network has been built with future passenger growth in mind and will be easily extended into further terminal developments. Additionally, when the NBN comes to Williamtown, the system is ready for a swift switchover.
CEO of Newcastle Airport, Dr Peter Cock said the new WiFi service is helping travellers to stay connected.
“We understand how important it is to stay connected both in person – which we help to facilitate every day by connecting our region to the rest of Australia and beyond – and online through phones, tablets, or laptops,” Peter said.
“We’ve invested extensively in this WiFi network to ensure our passengers have access to reliable and fast internet when using our terminal.
“We’re committed to giving our region an airport it deserves. This is why we’re keeping access to our new WiFi network free for our passengers.”
This investment in state-of-the-art passenger services is in addition to the recent installation of smart seats in the terminal that provide more than 300 charge points in the departure lounge.
“Our new WiFi is another reason why it’s smarter to choose Newcastle Airport as your point A,” concluded Peter.
The Newcastle Airport has undergone major growth and development over the past year, including the official opening of the international arrivals and departures fit-out that was opened in August.
Newcastle Airport’s Go Smarter campaign is encouraging the business community to make the local airport their point A when considering their travel options.
