JOHN WAYNE AIRPORT INTRODUCES FREE WI-FI SERVICE

SANTA ANA, Calif. - John Wayne Airport (JWA) is pleased to be partnering with FreeFi Networks to provide free wireless internet access to passengers throughout the concourses, lounges and concession areas of JWA's Thomas F. Riley Terminal.

"Wireless internet access is one of the amenities most frequently requested by our passengers," said Alan L. Murphy, Airport Director. "We're happy to be able to provide this much-anticipated service at no cost to our passengers."

FreeFi Networks is a premier provider of content and advertiser-supported internet access for the traveling public. Included among the large-scale installations currently powered by FreeFi Networks are Denver International Airport and Oakland International Airport.

"We are able to deliver a quality internet experience to business and leisure travelers while generating revenue for the airport," said Richard Bogen, FreeFi's managing director. "It's a win-win proposition for all involved."

To log onto the network, a user accepts the terms of an "End User License," watches a thirty-second ad and is then connected to the internet. Passengers wishing to access the free service should look for JWAFREEWIFI in their computer’s "available wireless networks" list. FreeFi Networks provides toll-free 24/7 technical support.

John Wayne Airport is currently undergoing a number of improvements to modernize the existing Thomas F. Riley Terminal while also adding a new Terminal C, more parking and even more passenger services and amenities. Learn more about the Airport Improvement Program at www.ocair.com/improvements.
