7000 iPads To Be Deployed At U.S Airports To Improve Airport Experience For Travelers

by on June 8th, 2012

According to a report by CNETOTG has announced that it is going to deploy over 7,000 new iPads at 3 major airports in the U.S over the next year and a half to give travelers a much better airport experience. A few hundred iPads are already in place at LaGuardia airport in New York. OTG has placed the new iPads in its dining areas where customers can order using these iPads and then check their Facebook, Twitter or e-mail as well as some news, gaming, and other apps while they wait for their food to be delivered.

Detailing from the source:

“We believe this to be the largest deployment of consumer-facing iPads in the world, and for us, it’s just the beginning,” Rick Blatstein, chief executive officer of OTG, said in a statement.

All interaction on the iPads is done through a custom browser, and OTG says all user passwords and other personal information are wiped at the end of each session. I’ve heard no such assurances from the TSA and other security cameras that are certainly watching your every move and keystroke, however.

OTG is currently operating restaurants in major U.S airports including John F. Kennedy, Washington National, Chicago O’Hare and Philadelphia.
