Globe Telecom said it provided unlimited free Wi-Fi connection in the four terminals of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) on January 13 and 14.

Airport authorities temporarily stopped flight operations on Sunday night due to the presence of volcanic ash clouds at major traffic airway and ashfall accumulated along the runway after Taal Volcano spewed an ash column up to at least 100-meters high on Sunday.

The NAIA shut down has affected 516 international and domestic flights since Sunday night.

Authorities announced the resumption of partial operations starting Monday morning but more than 200 flights remain either canceled or delayed as flight schedules would depend on the availability of slots.

The cancellation of flights has also allowed the airport personnel to clear the runway of ashfall from the volcanic eruption.

In a statement, Janis Racpan, director for Wi-Fi Business Group, said providing unlimited internet access aims to help the stranded passengers to inform their loved ones about their situation.

The telephone company also provided unlimited Wi-Fi access to the selected malls in Cavite, Laguna, and Batangas to give those affected by the Taal Volcano eruption the opportunity to communicate with their family and friends.
