free-hotspot to offer its free Wi-Fi service to the airport sector


free-hotspot.com, said to be the world's largest free Wi-Fi Internet service provider, announced today that it has successfully installed its service in two Brittany airports, Quimper Cornouaille and Lannion - Côte de Granit. The installations are said to reflect a commitment by free-hotspot.com to provide its free Wi-Fi service in regional as well as international airports. The company plans further airport installations in the UK and the rest of Europe in the near future.

Equipped for several months now, the Quimper Cornouaille airport was the first to benefit from the free Wi-Fi service offered by Irish company free-hotspot.com. Within just a few months, passengers have quickly adopted the new service that allows them to stay connected and to work using their own laptops whilst waiting for flights. Use of the free Wi-Fi service has increased month on month, and now one in every 20 passengers passing through Quimper airport are said to benefit from the free Wi-Fi offering.

Lannion - Côte de Granit airport has also just partnered up with free-hotspot.com to offer free Wi-Fi to its passengers. The installation was undertaken recently, but initial feedback is claimed to already suggests that the service will be at least as successful as the HotSpot in Quimper.

Joe Brunoli, Vice President, Business Development at free-hotspot.com comments: "We are delighted to be providing our service to regional airports such as Quimper and Lannion. The increasing demand for free Wi-Fi by air passengers of all types means that our service is a must-have for all airports, and not just the major hubs."

"Airports are well suited for providing free Wi-Fi services," explained Brunoli. "Offering free Internet access means that the passengers are likely to spend more time at the airport, and may even arrive earlier to go online while in the gate area. The result is less congestion through security, a better customer experience, and more terminal revenue thanks to increased per-passenger spend," concludes Mr. Brunoli.
