Wi-Fi service now available at Whitehorse International Airport

WHITEHORSE—The Erik Nielsen Whitehorse International Airport now provides free Wi-Fi service throughout the airport terminal.

“We recognize providing Wi-Fi service at the Whitehorse airport is essential to fulfilling the needs of today’s travellers,” Minister of Highways and Public Works Scott Kent said.

Passengers can now log into the network, called YXY-Public, to access the service anywhere in the airport terminal. The Wi-Fi connection can be accessed from any smartphone, tablet, laptop or other mobile device.

“Airport users have indicated that this is a service that they value and we have responded,” Kent added. “Airport Wi-Fi service will help keep Yukoners and visitors to Yukon better connected when they travel.”

The portal was created by Whitehorse-based company TSCO Ltd., in partnership with the Department of Highways and Public Works.

“This is a welcome addition to the free Wi-Fi that we currently provide in all six of our Visitor Information Centres,” Minister of Tourism and Culture Elaine Taylor said. “The service will be very useful for visitors as they plan their time in Yukon, and search for the many excellent accommodation, dining and recreation options throughout the territory. We also hope it provides another opportunity for visitors leaving Yukon to tell their friends and relatives back home about their travels here and all the territory has to offer.”
