Las Vegas airport preps for tech-savvy travelers

LAS VEGAS (AP) — While the gadgets of the future are only just arriving in Las Vegas for the annual International CES show, officials at the city’s main airport are updating a decades-old terminal to cater to legions of tech-savvy travelers.

By Friday at McCarran International Airport, a couple thousand outlets and USB ports under seats and inside bars and restaurants will be available for those looking for a power charge in Terminal 1 before heading home after the gadget convention.

The fix is a long-term one and comes as the airport also doubled the bandwidth available for each traveler allowing for speedier surfing via the airport’s free Wi-Fi. The Wi-Fi debuted 10 years ago ahead of another CES show.

By the next CES, officials expect to install tech-friendly lounge areas.
