Of the 471 Wi-Fi-enabled airports in the U.S., for example, the site says roughly one-fourth of them feature free Wi-Fi in all or part of the terminals. Many are at smaller fields like Lubbock International Airport in Texas; these airports often cater to private jets, whose wealthy owners increasingly rely on Wi-Fi on the road.
