Airport hospitality group OTG says that next week it will begin using Amazon’s Just Walk Out technology to let travelers purchase food and beverage items at its CIBO Express Gourmet Market without stopping at checkout.
Starting on March 16 at Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) Terminal C and followed later by additional stores at EWR and LaGuardia Airport (LGA), travelers will be able to quickly enter the store using their credit card, grab the CIBO items they wish to purchase and just walk out for maximum speed and convenience.
“We’re incredibly proud to be integrating Amazon’s Just Walk Out technology into the OTG airport experience,” says Rick Blatstein, CEO of OTG. “OTG has always embraced technology as a means of optimizing the airport experience so that we can give our guests their time back. By using the world’s most advanced shopping technology in our CIBO Express Gourmet Markets, we’re doing just that by putting our guests in full control of their time.”
OTG now has more than 100 CIBO Express Gourmet Markets in ten major airports, providing travelers with a uniquely curated assortment of ready-made provisions; fresh and wholesome foods; top-line health and beauty solutions and gifts; and leading-edge electronics.
Amazon’s Just Walk Out technology will serve OTG guests’ very specific and time-sensitive needs, offering travelers a check-out free effortless experience that makes shopping at airports easier and much quicker.
