BALTIMORE, November 24, 2009 – BAA Maryland, developer of the AIRMALL® at Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI), is ushering in the holidays with two services that are in high demand for travelers – complimentary Wi-Fi Service and a flu shot clinic.
The AIRMALL® at BWI has joined forces with Google and Boingo Wireless, Inc. this holiday season to provide passengers with free Wi-Fi from now through January 15th at the airport. Passengers can access this complimentary Wi-Fi service by clicking on the “Boingo Hotspot” within the airport or visiting the Boingo Wireless, Inc. home page, where this special offer will appear. Passengers may simply click on it and proceed to the Internet.
At the same time, the AIRMALL® has opened a flu shot clinic and is administering shots to passengers every Tuesday and Thursday from 7 a.m. through 7 p.m. now through December 10th. The AeroClinic, located in Concourse A/B next to Sunglass Hut and Concourse D at Gate D1, will offer vaccines for the seasonal flu for $40.00 and the H1N1 vaccine (when available) for $22.00.
“At the AIRMALL®, we’ve always been responsive to the needs of the traveling passenger,” said Carol Fearns, vice president of BAA Maryland. “We’ve offered our travelers and airport employees flu shot clinics for the past few years and are pleased to continue to do so this year, particularly with many people having a hard time finding the H1N1 vaccine. And when it comes to staying connected while on the go, free Wi-Fi certainly represents a big value proposition for the passenger.”
Flu shot clinics will not be held during the week of Thanksgiving. For additional details about the clinic please visit, http://www.bwiairport.com/en/service/upcoming-events.
