Free iPads at the airport

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Going to the airport used to be all about catching a flight, but now, it's turning into an interactive experience.

Ipads are being installed at New York area airports for web browsing, ordering food, and even paying bills.

Airport food and beverage provider OTG is behind the idea. The iPads are near gates, at tables, and even at bars.

To date, OTG has about 1,000 iPads deployed at LaGuardia Delta Terminal D and Terminal C. The goal is to eventually have more than 7,000 iPads at different airports.

"It's about creating a great experience for travelers," OTG director of communications Sean Aziz says.

Aziz says sales are up 20% in the iPad equipped terminals.

Chief Technology Officer Albert Lee says the iPads run a special OTG interface. It allows passengers to check flight status, order food, browse the web, and even play games.
