SPOKANE, Wash. and WARWICK, R.I. -- Spokane International Airport (GEG) and Airport Network Solutions (ANS), a subsidiary of ICOA, Inc. (OTCBB:ICOA), announced today the unveiling of a new “Neutral Host” high speed broadband wireless network throughout the entire airport, serving GEG’s nearly 3 million passengers per year as well as airlines and other airport tenants.

The new neutral host high speed broadband wireless Internet network offers passengers at GEG secure, affordable and convenient wireless Internet access from anywhere in the terminal, and will provide WLAN services for airport administration and operations functions, airlines and airport concessionaires. Service for the first month, through July 16, 2004, will be free.

“We are excited to partner with ANS to offer high-speed wireless Internet access for our airline passengers at Spokane International Airport,” said John G. Morrison, CEO/Executive Director. “GEG is committed to providing outstanding customer service and cost effective services which improve productivity, reduce costs and enhance our passenger’s travel experience. The addition of public wireless Internet access is a natural extension of this continuing commitment and an exciting new service for our passengers, vendors and tenants.”

“With the launch of Spokane as our sixth airport, ANS has moved beyond our proof-of-concept stage to become a major airport Wi-Fi network provider”, said Rick Schiffmann, CEO of ICOA’s ANS subsidiary. “Our airport-wide approach makes it more convenient for passengers to connect instantly in all public areas of the airport rather than having to ‘sniff out’ limited hotspots and allows the airport authority to cost-effectively offer and manage WLAN services to all tenants”.
