Free wi-fi service available at major airports- Keyamo

By Innocent Raphael

The Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Festus Keyamo, has said passengers traveling through Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) in Lagos and Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport (NAIA) in Abuja can now access free Wi-Fi.

Keyamo made this known on Sunday in a statement issued by his Special Assistant on Media, Tunde Moshood.

The statement confirmed that the initiative is part of a broader agenda by the ministry, to enhance airport infrastructure across Nigeria.

“Passengers at both local and international terminals in Lagos and Abuja can now enjoy free Wi-Fi at Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport and Murtala Muhammed International Airport (Terminal 1 & Terminal 2). Stay connected, surf the web, and make your journey smoother,” said Keyamo.

While stating that the move to provide free internet services is aimed at improving the overall passenger experience, Keyamo advised passengers to connect to the “NCC Free Airport Wi-Fi” network to access the service.

Previously, Keyamo had expressed concerns over the lack of Wi-Fi at Nigerian airports, citing bureaucratic challenges between the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) and the Nigeria Airspace Management Agency (NAMA), leading to the reassignment of Wi-Fi provision responsibilities to NAMA.

“The Ministry of Aviation is collaborating with the Ministry of Communication to ensure free Wi-Fi access at all airports in the near future, as discussions are ongoing with some international firms to provide in-flight Wi-Fi services”, sai Keyamo.
