KT Group and alliance partner IDM Lebanon install Internet Kiosks into Beirut Rafic Hariri International Airport

Hong Kong – KT Group was selected, by IDM Lebanon and its client Beirut International Airport, to deploy the KT Model T7 Self Service Kiosk across the Beirut Rafic Hariri International Airport.

The bespoke customized KT Model T7 Kiosks have a single interactive monitor, are fitted with a dual language (English/Arabic) layout metal keyboard and furthermore the design was pimped out with the addition of a customized advertising light-box and silk screen graphic branding which truly enhances the T7 and makes it distinguishable from a distance throughout the Airport Terminal.

The KT Model T7 was selected from a number of designs submitted by a wide range of Kiosk Suppliers. Speaking at the launch of the Kiosks, Mr. Gabriel Hayek of IDM said, “We were looking for a high quality Kiosk which was well designed, easily customizable and economically priced.” He went on to say, “The KT Group offered us a product that was manufactured to very high standards, was economically priced, came standard with a Three Years Warranty and the most important part was their flexibility in customizing the unit to our exact needs.”


Mr. Kenneth Larsen, Managing Director of the KT Group, when contacted in his office in Istanbul said, “We were absolutely over the moon when IDM informed us that KT had been selected as the supplier of choice. It is a real honor for the KT Group to be a part of this prestigious project, which is one of the first of its kind in the region. We at KT always strive hard to provide a quality product at an economical price and because we are confident of our products, we offer a 3 year warranty on all our Kiosks and very flexible with customer requests for customization.”


The 23 KT Model T7 Kiosks have been strategically placed throughout the Airport to provide free internet browsing for all.
