OTG will be using Amazon‘s Just Walk Out technology in select CIBO Express Gourmet Markets in airports, with the first store set to open next week.

Starting on March 16 at Newark Liberty’s Terminal C and followed later by additional stores at Newark Liberty and LaGuardia airports, travelers can purchase food and beverage items at CIBO Express Gourmet Markets without stopping to check out. By using Amazon’s Just Walk Out technology in these markets, busy airport travelers can 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.OTG logo Amazon Just Walk Out

OTG says it is continuing to revolutionize the hospitality and travel retail space with its approach to using best-in-class technologies to enhance the airport terminal experience. Its CIBO Express Gourmet Markets, with more than 100 outlets across 10 major airports, offer today’s traveler 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 an effortless experience that makes shopping at airports easier and much quicker.

“We’ve found that shoppers truly appreciate checkout-free retail experiences, so we’re thrilled to be working with an innovative company like OTG to bring our proven Just Walk Out technology to their airport stores,” said Dilip Kumar, VP of physical retail and technology at Amazon. “Starting next week, travelers in the busy Newark Liberty Terminal C will no longer have to assess store lines to determine if they can quickly grab that snack, bottle of water or travel essential they need before their flight—OTG’s CIBO Express Gourmet Markets featuring Just Walk Out technology will let them quickly grab what they need and get on their way without standing in line to check out. We can’t wait to hear how travelers like the experience.”

Rick Blatstein, CEO of OTG, explained that the introduction of Amazon’s Just Walk Out technology in OTG stores promises to revolutionize the airport experience for travelers. He added that this work with Amazon is another step in OTG’s ongoing commitment to providing its guests with a frictionless experience.

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.”
