Stewart Airport now offers Wi-Fi service

By the Poughkeepsie Journal

NEW WINDSOR, N.Y. Stewart International Airport about 70 miles north of New York City is now “unwired.” That is, the terminal now features Wi-Fi Internet wireless service for the convenience of passengers and others using the facility.

The high-speed broadband wireless network provides enterprise-class Wi-Fi service in the terminal, to airline areas and to other airport tenants, Stewart officials said in a news release.

Passengers with Wi-Fi enabled laptops or PDAs can go online free through Oct. 28; charges apply thereafter.

Chuck Seliga, president of the airport, said it was part of operator National Express Corp.’s plans to improve customer service and provide amenities that “improve productivity, reduce costs and enhance our passengers’ travel experience.”

The network is powered by ICOA’s Airport Network Solutions, which has installations in 12 airports.

Stewart International Airport is near Stewart, N.Y., about 70 miles up the Hudson Valley from downtown New York.
