TRAVELERS at the Iloilo International Airport in Cabatuan, Iloilo need not stop their business and work transactions online while at the airport.
The whole airport complex is now fully wired by open and reliable Wifi connection after PLDT-Smart, the airport management and the Civil Aeronautics Administration of the Philippines (CAAP) launched the Wifi services Friday, August 5.
Fimina Gorres, Vice President and head of Enterprises for Customer Operation Management of PLDT-Smart, said the wifi connection is just a start of a comprehensive program of the company to connect and communicate with the people all over the country down to the barangay level.
Gorres said the airport is an important people hub and will showcase the Philippines as a vital transportation and tourism destination entry point. The Wifi project is expected to help catapult Iloilo as a regional center for business, tourism, education and other international and national events ready with upgraded Wifi facilities.
It is the first to invade the Iloilo airport and will soon be felt fully in all major airports, seaports, railway system, metro rail transport, public buildings and schools in the country.(LCP)
