Abu Dhabi International Airport announced on Monday activating ‘Super-Fi’ service that will increase internet upload and download speeds for the travelers at the airport.
Super-Fi sees upload and download speeds of up to 200mbps per user, among the fastest airport internet services available in the world. The move comes as part of Abu Dhabi Airports’ commitment to customer experience and digitalisation strategies.
The Super-Fi internet access has been installed and tested throughout the airport’s three terminals. It will now provide millions of travelers with improved online connectivity.
Internet access is free for public use throughout the terminals, allowing travelers to connect with family and friends upon arrival and prior to departure.
CEO of Abu Dhabi Airports, Bryan Thompson, said: “We understand just how important Wi-Fi has become to the travelling public. At Abu Dhabi Airports, we value our customers first and foremost, placing a primary focus on their experiences while coming and going from the UAE’s capital. Access to fast internet is a crucial factor that makes a big difference for our travelers. Providing our customers with enhanced connectively services is in line with our vision of becoming the world’s leading airports group.”
Thompson added: “We are proud to have rolled out ‘Super-Fi’ across the entirety of Abu Dhabi International Airport, free for all of our travelers. Super-Fi is not just Wi-Fi, it is incredibly fast and reliable, allowing our customers to keep in touch while using our fantastic facilities. Technology is at the heart of our digital transformation strategy, and this improved internet infrastructure will open the door to further smart services and connected solutions.”
Abu Dhabi Airports is a public joint-stock company wholly owned by the Abu Dhabi government. Currently under way is the development and expansion of Abu Dhabi International Airport designed to increase the overall capacity of the airport.
Last October, Abu Dhabi Airports and Cisco signed an agreement that provides the airport with cutting-edge solutions that will support its digital transformation strategy, including operational efficiency, digital capacity, and customer experience.
