Airline passengers can now access free Wi-Fi at airports managed by Thailand’s Airports of Thailand already since 1 March. The new service is up and running at all 6 airports in the Kingdom under AOT management, the group’s chairman Sitha Tiwaree told Thailand’s National News Bureau.
AOT, in partnership with True Group, announced the AOT Free WiFi by TrueMove H service to increase facilities for travelers at Thai airports and strengthen their potential as regional aviation hubs.
Free Wi-Fi is available at 1) Suvarnabhumi, 2) Don Mueang, 3) Chiang Mai, 4) Mae Fah Laung Chiang Rai, 5) Phuket and 6) Hat Yai airports.
Passenger traffic across all six airports reached 86 million in 2013. The Ministry of Transport had earlier called on airports to offer free Wi-Fi, to bring them up to international standards. AOT had offered Wi-Fi in departure halls, but registration was complicated, the broadband speed poor and the free use time insufficient for most travellers.
This time round AOT recruited True Corporation to provide free Wi-Fi under the name “AOT Free WIFI by True Move H”.
To log into free Wi-Fi, passengers must choose AOT Free Wi-Fi by TrueMove H and register a username and password with their Thai ID number or passport number (foreigners). The AOT Free WiFi by TrueMove H service can be accessed for up to 2 hours per day at a maximum speed of 10 Mbps.
