– The company will offer Wi-Fi services at the Dominican airport for its passengers
– It already connects the airports of El Dorado and Matecaña in Colombia, as well as the airport of Tocumen in Panama.
Eurona, the expert in connectivity services and solutions, will offer Wi-Fi service to passengers at Punta Cana International Airport, the fourth airport it operates in the Latin American region, which welcomes more than 7 million passengers each year. Thus, as a result of the agreement signed with Corporación Aeroportuaria del Este (CAE), owner of Punta Cana International Airport (AIPC), the company will offer wireless Internet access services at the Dominican airport, for the collective use of its users, through the implementation of its Hotspot-Wifi operating system.
Eurona will also be responsible for the design and development of the service portal, the configuration and deployment of the platform, as well as the monitoring and maintenance of other additional functionalities for the AIPC, such as the reporting of service usage levels by the airport users.
Eurona thus strengthens its position in a strategic market such as the airport market where it already connects the airports of El Dorado and Matecaña in Colombia and Tocumen in Panama, the latter being considered the “hub of the Americas”, connecting its 16.5 million annual passengers to 89 destinations in 34 countries in the Americas and Europe.
As part of this strategy, the company already has experience providing WiFi services to the Spanish airport network of AENA – the largest operator by number of airports with an influx of 275 million passengers in 2019 (pre-Covid data).
Eurona already has experience in the Dominican Republic This new contract also positions the company as a reference partner for the tourism sector, as Punta Cana airport is the nerve center of tourism in the country.
Around it are concentrated all types of accommodation, such as the Secrets Cap Cana, one of the Caribbean hotels where Eurona operates WiFi connectivity services.
Likewise, this agreement in the Dominican Republic is in addition to the license that Eurona already obtained in 2018 to install, commission, operate and maintain voice and internet services in the country for 20 years; an authorization that allows it to contribute to the economic and social development of the entire territory, taking into account that more than half of the households do not have access to internet or mobile telephony.
According to Fernando Ojeda, CEO of Eurona, “our landing in this new Latin American airport that receives millions of passengers per year reinforces our commitment to HotSpot/Wifi technology, with which we are already bringing connectivity to more than 18,000 hotel rooms and resorts in the Caribbean”.
