Continental Offers Wireless Access In Presidents Clubs

Continental Airlines
announced it is expanding the number of its
Presidents Clubs offering complimentary wireless Internet access, with all 28 clubs
Wi-Fi-enabled by the end of 2004.
The airline currently offers the service at its five Presidents Clubs at
Houston’s Bush Intercontinental Airport, three at Newark Liberty
International, and one at Cleveland Hopkins International.

The service, powered by Cisco Aironet Wi-Fi Access Points, enables any
Presidents Club member with a Wi-Fi compatible computer or client card to
access the Internet from anywhere in the club. Continental will have tip
sheets available to help members log in to the service.

“Customers increasingly want to stay connected, both on the ground and in
the air,” said a Continental spokesperson. “Wireless Internet access in
our Presidents Clubs and Verizon’s JetConnect service onboard our aircraft
let travelers stay in touch throughout their travels.”
