Skift Take

After a year of successful testing, flyers at New York-LGA, Toronto's Pearson, and Minneapolis-St. Paul International will now be able to wait for flights and monitor delays or surf the web without having to worry about finding or paying for a Wi-Fi connection.

Nationwide restaurant operator OTG is deploying more than 7,000 third-generation iPads at its eateries located in three international air hubs after recognizing a strong demand for entertainment in the normally staid airport environment.

The firm is turning a year-and-a-half-long pilot program into a working business model complete with centralized device management and proprietary apps that allow customers to use Apple’s iPad to order food, track flights, play games and surf the web.
