Gogo says San Francisco flyers use the most in-flight Wi-Fi

Gogo said San Francisco is the top airport for travelers who take advantage of its in-flight Wi-Fi services.

The company's airport rankings cover the number of passengers who used the service and calculate it as a percentage of the total amount of passengers who actually board an aircraft with Gogo Wi-Fi. The data includes usage rates over a 12-month period. To make the list, an airport had to have a minimum of 500,000 passengers board a Gogo-connected aircraft and had to be located in the continental United States.

In second place behind San Francisco International Airport was John F. Kennedy Airport in New York, followed by John Wayne Airport in Orange County, Calif., and Los Angeles International Airport.

"Almost all of the top 10 is made up of airports on the coasts in markets where we see a large number of business travelers who also are likely traveling on longer, cross country routes," said Ash ElDifrawi, Gogo's chief commercial officer.

Pensacola International Airport in Florida was rated the airport with the least connected air travelers, according to Gogo.
