MMA2 begins free internet service for passengers

14 December 2012, 12:22

Ikeja - The Bi-Courtney Aviation Services Ltd. (BASL), operators of the Murtala Muhammed Airport Two (MMA2) in Lagos, say they have begun free internet service to passengers travelling through the terminal.

According to a statement signed and issued by the company’s spokesman, Mr Steve Omolale-Ajulo, the company said the service was in conjunction with iWayafrica and MultiChoice Nigeria.

"The first phase of the project has already started from the Final Departure lounge. This is one of the numerous Christmas gifts BASL is giving to its passengers.

"Other locations at the terminal, such as the Food Court, Meeters & Greeters, as well as KFC are to be considered for the facility very soon.

"More ambitious projects to make MMA2 the best terminal in Africa will be executed in the New Year," it said.

The statement noted that the Wi-Fi Hotspot solution at the terminal would be the first of its kind in any airport terminal in Africa.

It says that the facility will enable users of the terminal access the world while waiting to board their flights.

"We’re really making the travel experience unique. We are the only airport terminal in Africa to offer free Wi-Fi to passengers.

"When it comes to working, investing and maintaining in the interest of the Nigerian public, we will make sure we remain far ahead," it said.

The statement quoted the Chief Executive Officer of BASL, Mr. Christophe Penninck, promising that the terminal would always remain the preferred gateway to majority of local air travellers in Nigeria.
