Philipsburg- Princess Juliana International Airport, will be offering high-speed Wi-Fi internet again for its passengers. Operations with Microtech Pro. The Wi-Fi is expected to be ‘up & running’ in about 6 weeks time.

As Wi-Fi connectivity becomes increasingly important to the world-class travelers at the Princess Juliana International Airport – SXM, it was imperative for its’ Chief Executive Officer, Brian Mingo to re-introduce the much anticipated service at the “Package One” temporary operations on the ground floor level.

The service will be implemented within a duration of six weeks, and serves as an essential part of the company’s Customer Experience Improvement Plan. Plans were already in the pipeline to implement a new Wi-Fi service before the devastation of Hurricane Irma in 2017, which then triggered more delays.

“With annual passenger numbers rising to greater levels, we anticipate that enhancing passenger satisfaction through this upgrade will further support the airport’s future growth. We are proud to restore the technology at one of the busiest airports in the Caribbean and launch an user friendly, high-speed Wi-Fi that travelers can now expect,” said Robert Brown, Manager of New Business Development.

“Once we had moved into the terminal building and out of the temporary Arrival and Departure Hall pavilions in December 2018, we felt it was time to accelerate the Wi-Fi plan”, explained Brown in his speech.

The new internet service will be introduced in collaboration with the local internet service provider, Microtech Pro.

The decision to contract Microtech Pro was made after a careful assessment by the airport of prospective supplier.
