TORONTO - Toronto's Pearson International Airport is one of three airports to be outfitted with thousands of iPads by restaurant company OTG Management.

The company says it will install 2,500 Apple tablets at the Toronto airport over the next 18 months.

About 300 have already been placed at New York's LaGuardia Airport, as part of a plan to deploy 2,000 in total. Another 2,500 are destined for the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

The iPads will be available to use in restaurants or waiting areas.

The company says they can be used to order meals, to access the web and social networks, or launch apps and games.
