Bahrain International Airport update: New terminal will have high-speed wifi and voice services

The new terminal at Bahrain International Airport is set to have high-speed data services thanks to new technology.

Batelco will operate an Enterprise LTE (eLTE) network which can meet demands for high volumes of data from both airport workers and visitors.

Essentially, the technology will mean you won’t struggle to connect while making calls, and web pages accessed on your phone will load faster while inside the airport.

The new technology will also help improve efficiency and enhance safety and security. Bahrain International will be the first airport in the Middle East to use the technology.

Abderrahman Mounir, Batelco Enterprise’s general manager, said, "We are committed for being a key stakeholder in elevating the services at Bahrain International Airport.

“We are also very pleased to enhance the travel experience of passengers by delivering high-speed connectivity for voice and data.

“Fulfilling the requirements of the business sector and consumers in Bahrain is at the core of our strategy.”

You may have noticed the LTE network while using data roaming while out and about in Bahrain. This is what your phone uses for voice calls and the internet.

Batelco is setting up an eLTE network purely for the airport, which means that no matter how many passengers are inside, speeds won’t slow down.
