Passengers Enjoy On-Board Internet Access as Airport Express Trains Go Wi-Fi

Passengers travelling on the Airport Express are now able to write email, do online searches, and check the latest news and information thanks to the new Wi-Fi service available on board all Airport Express trains.

“The Internet has become an integral part of our lives. With this convenient service, busy travellers can send email and keep track of their business up to the last minute before they catch their flights,” said Ms Annie Leung, Senior Manager – Sales and Marketing of the MTR Corporation.

The MTR Corporation began installing Wi-Fi connectivity on Airport Express trains last August. With all trains now Wi-Fi enabled, passengers can use their mobile phones, laptop computers and PDAs to search for the service provider’s network. Once logged in, they will be able to enjoy a seamless Internet connection during their journey.

Wi-Fi service was first introduced into the MTR railway network in 2004 to meet passengers’ needs for the latest information. Since then, Wi-Fi coverage has been extended to 30 stations along the Island Line, Tsuen Wan Line, Kwun Tong Line, and Airport Express.
