Delta Airlines today began the process of deploying new iPads in three new restaurants in the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport’s Concourse G. The iPads, located at each seat inside the restaurants, will allow travelers to order meals through a visual menu.
“Delta is following through on our commitment to invest in our Minneapolis-St. Paul hub by improving the airport experience with these truly unique amenities,” said Bill Lentsch, Delta’s senior vice president – Minnesota Operations, in the press release. “These enhancements on the ground coupled with our in-flight investments such as installing full flatbed seats in BusinessElite and Wi-Fi on more than 800 aircraft, make for a unique traveling experience on Delta that no other carrier can match.”
Delta says that orders placed through the iPads are then prepared fresh and delivered to the customers seat in 15 minutes or less.
I addition to being able to order food from the iPads, a custom browser allows travelers to easily login to their Facebook, Twitter, and personal email accounts. They can also check flight status, play games, and watch news through pre-loaded apps.
After a customer is finished using the iPad, any personal information is securely removed the moment the home button is pressed, and is automatically deleted after two minutes of idle time.
