Bharti Airtel has announced the deployment of its Airtel 5G Plus service at the Lal Bahadur Shastri International Airport, Varanasi. The new terminal in Bengaluru and Pune are the other two airports that have Airtel 5G Plus.

Varanasi was one amongst the first 8 cities in the country to get the Airtel 5G Plus service. The services are currently available at Benaras Hindu University (BHU), Ghatt Road, Adampur, Beniya Bagh Kashi Vishwanath Temple, Rajghat, Sarnath, Sigra, Thateri Bazaar and few other locations. Airtel is augmenting its network further to make its services available across the city in due course of time.

Customers flying in and out of Varanasi can enjoy high speed 5G services across the airport terminal. Passengers can enjoy 5G service on their mobile phones while they are at the arrival and departure terminals, lounges, boarding gates, migration and immigration counters, security areas, baggage claim belts, parking area etc.. Customers with 5G smartphones can switch to high speed Airtel 5G Plus on their existing data plans without changing the SIM as the existing Airtel 4G SIM is 5G enabled.

Commenting on the launch, Sovan Mukerjee, CEO, Airtel (Uttar Pradesh), said, “I am thrilled to announce the beginning of a new chapter in Varanasi as we power the Lal Bahadur Shastri International Airport with Airtel 5G Plus. Airtel customers can now enjoy blazing fast speeds on their mobile phones allowing them to access superfast High-Definition video streaming, gaming, multiple chatting, instant uploading of photos and more while at the airport. I thank the authorities at Varanasi airport for all their support in making this project live. Airtel customers are already enjoying 5G services in key locations in the city. We are in the process of augmenting the network further to make our services available across Varanasi.”
