Global Bazaar opens for business

United Airlines and OTG have opened a new expansive food hall in Terminal C at Newark Liberty International Airport which they claim transforms itself during the day to meet the changing needs of the gateway’s customers.

The new ‘Global Bazaar’ features a wide variety of vibrant offerings sourced from New York’s diverse and globally-inspired food culture, in addition to its market offering of news, gift and locally sourced retail.

And after the breakfast rush departs, the Global Bazaar’s space automatically adapts to accommodate the lunch and dinner crowd.

“Developing the best possible experience for Terminal C’s travellers required a lot of imagination from our design, culinary and tech teams,” says OTG’s CEO, Rick Blatstein.

“This space is truly the first of its kind – the Bazaar changes as we move through the day. Its unique and immersive design, intuitive technology and, of course, great food is something we are incredibly proud to offer to United customers.” 

Ezeiza International Airport unveils its new eGates

Buenos Aires-Ezeiza International Airport has become the latest gateway to deploy Vision-Box’s Automated Border Control (ABC) solution to enhance the processing and airport experience of arriving passengers.

Initially just for use by Argentinian citizens but due to expanded to other nationalities in the future, the new eGates make it possible to clear border control in just 17 seconds, which would dramatically cut queues in Arrivals.

“The biometric eGates will not only speed up the transit time of travellers but also allow us to gather more accurate information of those entering and exiting Argentine territory using digital technology,” says Argentina’s Minister of the Interior Affairs, Public Works and Housing, Rogelio Frigerio.

He added that the installation of the border control system is fulfilling the government’s goal of “speeding up border crossings to encourage tourism and investment in the country, while at the same time improving security levels”.

Vision-Box’s Group CEO, Miguel Leitmann, says: “This project is part of our continuing mission of making positive contributions to the safety and security of people the world over.

“I am extremely pleased that with the installation of the ABC system at Ezeiza Airport and the planned expansion, Vision-Box is able to improve the quality of Argentinian smart border services and increase traveller’s access to them using trusted digital identification technologies.”
