“WiFiBOX”, an “unprecedented Wi-Fi rental” that allows you to easily rent a mobile Wi-Fi router without contact, will be newly installed on the 1st floor of the Ibaraki Airport terminal building, and the service will start from Thursday, December 7, 2023. We would like to inform you.
This is the first time in Ibaraki Prefecture and the third airport in the Kanto area to install WiFi BOX, following Narita Airport and Haneda Airport, bringing the total number of WiFi BOX installation locations to 53 facilities and 60 locations. Going forward, we will continue to actively install these systems at domestic airports, stations, commercial facilities, etc., with the aim of further improving convenience for our customers.
Located on the 1st floor of the Ibaraki Airport Terminal Building, in the domestic lobby, with your back to the domestic check-in counter, in front of the Seico Mart convenience store, next to the ATM and money exchange machine.

Ibaraki Airport will have approximately 600,000 passengers in fiscal 2022, which is 213.2% compared to fiscal 2021 and has recovered to approximately 80% of its pre-coronavirus level. Domestic flights include flights to popular tourist destinations such as Naha and New Chitose, and international flights resumed on March 26, 2023 to Taipei for the first time in about three years, making them popular not only for domestic travel but also for inbound tourists. An increase in the number of foreign tourists is also expected.
In addition, Ibaraki Airport is located approximately 40 minutes by car from downtown Mito, and it is also approximately 40 minutes from Hitachi Seaside Park, one of Ibaraki Prefecture's most popular tourist destinations. It takes about 50 minutes by car to reach ``Paradise''. Furthermore, there are shuttle buses to various parts of the prefecture and Tokyo Station, making it a highly convenient airport for sightseeing and returning home.
We believe that the number of inbound foreign tourists using flights to Taipei will increase, as well as overseas travelers from Japan, business travelers, and travelers transiting overseas via New Chitose Airport and Fukuoka Airport. Therefore, we decided to install a WiFi BOX to meet the needs of users.
