Five of Japan’s busiest airports have selected a new wireless internet service.
US-based Wi-Fi provider, Boingo Wireless, has secured a deal to manage and operate Wi-Fi services at Tokyo Haneda Airport, Tokyo Narita Airport, New Chitose Airport in Sapporo, Fukuoka Airport and Chubu Airport in Nagoya,
“Our new agreement… is a milestone for Boingo, marking our first managed Wi-Fi services in Japan and significant additions to our roaming offerings in Asia Pacific,” said Allen Pan, Boing’s director for Asia Pacific. “We look forward to offering Wi-Fi plan options that can meet the needs of travelers and platform partners alike, helping them avoid high international data roaming tariffs through Wi-Fi roaming.”
Boingo will use its ‘Boingo Hotspot’ service at the five airports, which offer users hourly and daily passes, with user authentication.
With the addition of the five Japanese airports in Japan, Boingo will manage Wi-Fi services at Asia Pacific airports handling a total of 250 million passengers each year.
