Delta Air Lines, in an attempt to woo travelers over to their airline, will soon begin deploying 250 iPads to restaurants throughout the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
In its announcement, Delta Air Lines says travelers will be able to find and use the tablets at Concourse G’s MinniBar, Mimosa, and Shoyu.
Delta recently rolled out Apple iPad’s at New York’s LaGuardia Airport as part of its plan to put the tablets in three airport hubs over the next 12 months. When the plan is fully rolled out, 4,500 Delta supplied iPad devices will be available for customer use.
Customers in Minneapolis and at LaGuardian can use the tablets to order meals without talking to an actual person. Delta and partner OTG promise that food will be served fresh within 15 minutes from order time.
iPad users can also use the tablets to check their Twitter and Facebook accounts, browse their email, and, of course, check out flight status updates. While waiting for food, iPad users can also watch video clips from the news and play games.
After the home button is pressed or the iPad is left alone for two minutes or more, the user’s personal data is wiped clean and the iPad is ready for another person to use.
If you happen to be traveling through LaGuardia airport in New York, you can find the iPads at Terminals C and D.
Minneapolis-St. Paul will have 2,500 total iPads when the program has fully rolled out. The iPads will also be available at gatehouses inside the airport.
