Great news to all outbound and inbound travellers using the General Santos City International Airport!

The GenSan International Airport which is to undergo a major rehab this year (CHECK THE STORY HERE), is now a WIFI HotZone!

Bariles got this piece of information from an email from SMART Communications’ Haydee Bernabe.  She further explained that the pre-departure and arrival terminals of the airport already have FREE Internet Access through SMART Bro, effective yesterday, September 17, 2009!

Wow!  This means, passengers can surf the internet, check their email, chat, update their Facebooks with their laptops, PDAs or cellphones while waiting for their flights at the pre-departure areas or while waiting for their luggage at the arrival area.  We just hope that the 2nd floor coffee shop run by Family Country Hotel and Convention Center is also within the range of Smart Bro’s Wifi Hotzone.

SMART Bro, a major supporter of the recently concluded 2009 GenSan Tuna Festval Xperience is also responsible for making the GenSan City Hall Lobby the first government WIFI Hotzone in Region 12 in March of last year. (Read the old blog post about it by Clicking Here.)

With this development, plus the major rehab it will undergo this year, there is no doubt that the GenSan International Airport is well on its way to becoming one the country’s “Most Passenger Friendly Airports” in the coming months.

Again, thanks to the generosity of SMART Bro who keep on springing surprises for the people of GenSan.

Smart Bro‘s next stop?  Free Wi-Fi access for the newly-renovated PLAZA Heneral Santos perhaps?  How about it Sir Mon Isberto? Sir Manny Pangilinan?

The generals are waiting with bated breath…..  🙂

Plaza Heneral Santos, getting ready for SMART Bros Wifi Access....
