Seychelles’ leading telecommunications company, Cable & Wireless (C&W), has reportedly just signed an agreement with the Seychelles’ Civil Aviation Authority to provide free Wi-Fi services for passengers at the archipelago’s main airports. Benefitting arriving and departing passengers using the international terminal, this will allow them to almost instantly send Tweets, Instagram pictures, and Facebook messages, as a first brag towards their friends and as a last memento before they board their aircraft to fly home.

The service also extends to the adjoining domestic terminal – which is undergoing major transformation – and the domestic aerodrome on the archipelago’s second largest island Praslin.

Present at the launch, which was performed by the Principal Secretary for Information and Communications Technology, Benjamin Choppy, was the Seychelles’ Minister for Foreign Affairs and Transport Joel Morgan, Cable & Wireless Seychelles CEO Charles Hammond, and SCAA CEO Gilbert Faure.

Once connected, passengers can use the free service for 60 minutes after which one either pays or else goes silent.

The Air Seychelles First and Business Class lounge at the airport offers unrestricted free Wi-Fi for premium passengers, besides a splendid view over the runway and the apron, allowing for great pictures of aircraft landing, taxiing, and parking.

Across the islands, C&W provides hotspots which tourists, at a cost, can sign into.
