A new service to be added at HIA
A memorandum of understanding signed by Vodafone Qatar and Hamad International Airport (HIA) sets the HIA on course to become one of the smartest connected airports in the world.
The agreement will see Vodafone Qatar becomes the first operator to deploy its world-class GigaNet 5G in-building network in the airport.
The agreement was signed on the sidelines of QITCOM 2019, the largest information and communications showcase in Qatar, by Vodafone Qatar’s CEO, Sheikh Hamad Abdulla Jassim Al Thani, and the Chief Operating Officer of the HIA, Badr Mohammed Al Meer.
As part of its digital strategy, the state-of-the-art airport is already investing in cutting edge smart technologies to transform customer experience with an end-to-end self-service passenger journey enabled by biometric facial recognition. Innovative technologies are also being deployed to enhance operational excellence. The availability of Vodafone Qatar’s 5G network will help support this by improving network response times and capacity.
HIA’s partnership with Vodafone Qatar will be pivotal in delivering ubiquitous ultra-high-speed communication, providing our passengers with connectivity like never before.
