NEWARK, NJ — Travelers waiting for flights at Newark Liberty Airport will soon be able to pick up an iPad in Terminal C to play games and redeem points toward flights and food credits.
Newark City Council gave its final approval on Wednesday on an ordinance to authorize the issuing of redemption amusement licenses to OTG, which operates the terminal’s food and drink services. The ordinance allows games on iPads travelers currently use to order and pay for food and drinks around the terminal.
The ordinance adds a new chapter to the city’s municipal code adding “redemption amusement games” to “amusement and amusement businesses.” The ordinance would designate Terminal C a “recognized amusement park” to allow for such licenses to be issued.
The games would be allowed from 7 a.m. to midnight for services with food licenses and 7 a.m. to 3 a.m. for holders of licenses that also serve alcohol.
The ordinance was originally brought forth under Mayor Ras Baraka's administration.
