Local chefs feature true Philly flavors in restaurant concept

Philadelphia International Airport (PHL), American Airlines, MarketPlace PHL and award-winning hospitality group OTG have held the grand opening for PHL´s new Terminal B, the companies said.

The grand opening finds the project on schedule for its phased 18-24 month roll-out plan.

The USD 30 million investment in Terminal B includes everything from new and improved technology offerings, to local chef-driven restaurant concepts, to immersive, and free-flowing design.

The team implementing the innovative changes at PHL Terminal B was led by OTG in partnership with the airline, airport and MarketPlace PHL.

The newly designed terminal includes a new, wider range of shopping and dining options for travelers. New concepts have already begun to open along with OTG´s award-winning CIBO Express Gourmet Markets. The markets feature locally sourced and inspired items from small businesses throughout Philadelphia and the surrounding area.

Driven by OTG´s award-winning flo® technology, the iPads allow guests to track their flight, browse the web, play games, and order food and amenities from intuitive visual menus, all delivered directly to their seat. Customers also have access to more than 2,000 power & USB ports with the redesigned terminal seating.
