WiFi at Ho Chi Minh / Saigon Airport SGN

Friday, February 11th, 2011

Kudos to SGN for providing at least some internet access to travelers.

SGN is a fairly small, easy to manage airport considering the size of Ho Chi Minh City, but offers most of the amenities of larger airport Venues.

Note:  As of this writing (Feb 12, 2011) domestic flights would not allow liquid containers over 100ml – the same as the normal standards – so pack as normal.

I’m in the domestic terminal at Ho Chi Minh / Saigon Airport in Vietnam (SGN) and getting a fairly good WiFi signal from near the business lounge with ID “Domestic Lounge” and no password required.    I’ve read that access here in domestic flights is spotty where it’s better in international terminal, especially near “Izzy” ? Coffee – can’t check on that terminal yet – but in a few weeks I’ll be in and out of there several times.

Free Wifi Holiday brought to you by several Airports and Virgin Airlines

Wednesday, November 11th, 2009

Free WIFI is available through January 15 on Virgin Airlines and at over 50 participating airports over the holidays.

As we’ve noted before, Airports like McCarran Las Vegas LAS and Portland Oregon PDX are wonderful to provide this great service to those of us who …. get bored in Airports and don’t appreciate paying $9.95 or more to simply surf aimlessly for an hour or (heaven forbid!) get some work done.
