Nigerian telecommunications operator Globacom (Glo) announced that it has launched the first comprehensive airport wireless Internet service in partnership with the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN). The new service will allow travelers to have internet access at the country’s airports.
“With this development, passengers and other users of the airports will now be able to connect wirelessly to the internet through their smartphones, tablets, laptops and other smart devices,” said FAAN in a statement.
Globacom’s Coordinator for Business Solutions Ike Oraekwuotu said Globacom “was delighted to introduce ultra high speed Wi-Fi for travellers and other airport users and that the facility will be available at both the domestic and international wings of key airports across the country.”
He added that “all passengers using the airport will be able to connect to the facility. They will subsequently be directed to a subscription page where they will be able to buy a Wi-Fi data plan through three options.”
These options include using an existing data plan with Globacom, by recharging with a Glo recharge card available at Glo kiosks at most airports, or by paying for a WIFI plan via credit card.
The service will be available in 22 airports nationwide soon.
