Uber Eats to deliver right to your departure gate at Toronto Pearson Airport
Something delicious is coming to the Toronto Pearson Airport. A pilot program, the first of its kind in the world, Toronto Pearson, Uber Eats and HMSHost have partnered to bring Uber Eats to Toronto Pearson’s Terminal 3 International and Domestic Departures area.
“Just last month, Toronto Pearson was voted by passengers as the Best Large Airport in North America as part of Airports Council International’s Airport Service Quality program,” said Scott Collier, vice president, customer and terminal services at the Greater Toronto Airports Authority. “We also received the Most Improved Airport in North America recognition, and this innovative partnership with Uber Eats and HMSHost, unlike among airports worldwide, underscores our commitment to continued innovation in passenger service. We couldn’t be more excited to pilot this innovative offering for International and Domestic passengers in Terminal 3.”
Uber Eats is an on-demand food delivery app that helps bring millions of people around the world to the food they want, at the tap of a button. The app is available on iOS iPhone or Android devices, and will give passengers the opportunity to choose food from their favourite HMSHost restaurant, delivered right to their gate. Caplansky’s Deli, Paramount Fine Foods, Smoke’s Burritorie, Smashburger and Fionn MacCools are some of the restaurants that people can choose from.
“Uber Eats’ partnership with Toronto Pearson is a perfect example of how our platform is creating unique experiences in unexpected places, beyond rides,” said Marcus Womack, head of global airport products at Uber. “We’re making the dining experience a more convenient part of travel, in one of the world’s most innovative airports, one meal at a time.”
Toronto Pearson and Uber Eats’ pilot is scheduled to run to the third quarter of 2019 and is available at gates B22-B41 and C30-C36 in Terminal 3.
“HMSHost is committed to finding new ways to enhance traveller dining and Uber Eats brings convenience for all guests when they choose to dine with HMSHost,” said Neil Thompson, vice president of operations, HMSHost. “We are very excited about partnering with Toronto Pearson and Uber Eats to expand the amenities we offer and to providing passengers with an elevated guest experience through delivery service.”
