Hilton Zurich Airport to provide secure high-speed internet

19th August 2010 Print

iBAHN, the worldwide leader in digital entertainment and Internet solutions for the hospitality and meeting industries, has announced that it is to complete a digital entertainment and High Speed Internet Access (HSIA) installation at the Hilton Zurich Airport in Switzerland.

The hotel will be equipped with a state-of-the-art IPTV solution and HSIA over fibre-optic networks offering guests the ability to confidently access the internet, with a high quality of service and 24/7 technical support in local languages. iBAHN’s digital services combine digital TV entertainment with superb HD picture quality, which is vastly superior to analogue systems, and secure high-speed internet services.

Using these services, the Hilton Zurich Airport will be able to totally integrate guest services with entertainment packages, offering multiple revenue streams and improved guest satisfaction from the ease of use of the system and greater choice of high quality entertainment.

The hotel is located in North Zurich's business district, 5 minutes from Zurich Kloten Airport and 15 minutes from downtown Zurich. It offers 25 meeting rooms for 2-250 people and a complimentary shuttle bus runs from the airport to the hotel regularly. This makes it a favourite for business travellers, who will now benefit from iBAHN’s wired HSIA in guest and conference rooms, business centre PCs and laptop connect services.

Bettina Schütt, General Manager, Hilton Zurich Airport, comments: “Thanks to our combined airport and city location, business travellers tend to be one of our most frequent occupants. Therefore it is vitally important that the Hilton Zurich Airport caters for their every need. iBAHN is not only a trusted Hilton partner, but a respected name that our business guests know and actively seek out. In addition, iBAHN’s flexibility, high levels of service and extra revenue opportunities make them difficult to match in the connectivity and digital entertainment sector.”

Graeme Powell, Managing Director EMEA, iBAHN, comments: “Hilton Zurich Airport offers superb facilities and location for business travellers in Switzerland. We have delivered the very best infrastructure platform that will provide fast, secure and trouble-free internet connectivity, as well as help to evolve the hotel’s digital offering with the next generation of IPTV and entertainment packages.”
