BTN Europe presents an overview of business travel and MICE predictions for this year
CrossCountry has completed a year-long project to fit its 92 trains with wifi systems to provide all passengers with free internet on-board.
The technology has been installed in every train carriage, which CrossCountry says provides optimum coverage and allows customers to stay connected while on the move.
CrossCountry head of marketing Clare Shufflebotham said: “We’re really excited to invest in free wifi technology, as we know how important it is for our customers and their journeys. From Aberdeen to Penzance and Cardiff to Stansted, we cross more of the country than any other rail company. Each and every one of our customers can now stay connected on every journey.”
Commenting on the value of free on-board wifi for business travellers, Colin Birchenough, head of commercial at Clarity Travel Management, added: “As a key partner of CrossCountry trains and as a business that prides itself on meeting various business travellers’ needs, we’re really excited about the investment that’s been made into providing free wifi technology for those using CrossCountry’s services moving forward. We know how important it is for business travellers to stay connected whilst on the move, as they so often rely on travel time to work. It’s crucial they can do so with ease and so now thanks to CrossCountry, they can stay connected on every journey, wherever their work might take them.”
