United Airlines and OTG Management LLC have announced plans to redesign the dining and retail space at Terminal C at Newark Liberty International Airport, including “more than 55 dining venues made up of 20+ chef-driven restaurants, expansive food halls, gourmet markets and world-class retail and duty-free shops.”
The project, for which OTG has provided a $120 million capital investment, is expected to be “phased in over the next 18 months.”
Previously, OTG has also overseen the dining programs for Terminal 5 at JFK, Terminal D at LaGuardia, Terminal A at DCA, and others.
“Travelers today want the same high-quality dining and shopping choices in the airport that they have at home,” said Kate Gebo, United’s vice president of corporate real estate. “In collaboration with OTG, United is creating a customer experience at Newark Liberty that will provide exceptional food, beverage and retail options with the comfort and high-tech amenities that our customers have come to expect.”
Upon completion of the project, travelers will have free access to almost 6,000 iPads to keep track of flight details, order from chef-created menus, and purchase amenities that will be delivered directly to their seat in the terminal.
