Following the previous launch of free Wi-Fi services in Terminals One and Two of Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) in December 2006, HKIA, has now launched a full-service business centre onsite at the airport, powered by PCCW.
The new Connect Zone, located in the Level 6 Departures Hall (Restricted Area) near Gate 24, provides a comprehensive range of communication solutions and value-added services.
“Hong Kong is a business hub for Asia. It is our aim to support the needs of both business people and anyone who needs to stay connected while they are travelling,” said Airport Authority Hong Kong’s Commercial Director Hans Bakker. “Together with our airport-wide free Wi-Fi internet service, the Connect Zone at HKIA provides convenience and speed for people on the go.”
According to a recent survey by AC Nielsen, 76% of passengers visiting HKIA have indicated interest or need in using the airport’s telecommunications facilities. The same survey also reveals that 57% of non-local passengers would carry internet-capable devices during their travel. As for the types of Internet activities conducted at HKIA, 91% of respondents said that they have used the Internet to check email. Further, 41% of respondents mentioned they would surf the web and 6% conduct e-commerce.
The opening of the Connect Zone coincides with HKIA’s initiatives to welcome visitors during the Easter peak outbound travel season.
