Through an innovative mix of dining, design and technology, OTG is providing travelers across North America with award-winning restaurants by acclaimed chefs, and the latest iPad technology; demonstrating that the airport experience can be elevated. 

"Fast Company's recognition of OTG is worthy praise for something we already know well: OTG has significantly upgraded the restaurants at New York's airports,'' said Pat Foye, the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey's Executive Director.  "Working with Delta and JetBlue, OTG's efforts are helping the Port Authority's on-going conversion of JFK and LaGuardia airports into 21st Century airports befitting New York, and providing travelers with first-class food and beverage options."

OTG has seen substantial growth over the last 36 months, and leads the industry in passenger spend. Through significant investment, they have created transformative experiences at Delta LaGuardia and Minneapolis - St. Paul International, and Toronto Pearson Terminals 1 and 3. OTG is also celebrated for the dining program at JetBlue's JFK Terminal 5. Marrying culinary excellence at the airport with new media, OTG is currently deploying over 7,000 iPads to enable customers to order food through a translatable menu, track their flight status, enjoy curated content, and browse the web complimentary.  

"The culture of innovation across the globe is more robust than ever," reports Fast Company Editor Robert Safian, who identifies 12 lessons of innovation for 2014 within the issue. "To win in such a fast-changing environment requires a new kind of business agility."

"On behalf of our 3,000 crew members, we are honored to be recognized in Fast Company's list of the Top 50 Most Innovative Companies in the World," said Rick Blatstein CEO of OTG. "It is both humbling and inspiring to be included. For OTG, innovation is a journey and not a destination, and we will continue to look for opportunities to raise the bar in the airport experience even further." 

The Most Innovative Companies is Fast Company's most significant, high-profile editorial effort of the year. The editorial team spends months gathering and sifting data, to identify those enterprises that exemplify the best in business from across the economy and around the world. The end result is a package that dares to be different, emphasizing not just revenue growth and profit margins but also progressive, sustainable business models and an ethos of creativity.
