TORONTO — As part of a first-of-its-kind pilot program, Toronto Pearson International Airport, Uber Eats and HMSHost have partnered to bring Uber Eats to the airport’s Terminal 3 International and Domestic Departures area.
Using the Uber Eats app, passengers can choose to have food from HMSHost restaurants — such as Caplansky’s Deli, Paramount Fine Foods, Smoke’s Burritorie, Smashburger or Fionn MacCools — delivered right to their gate.
“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,” says Scott Collier, vice-president, Customer and Terminal Services, 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’ partnership with Toronto Pearson is a perfect example of how our platform is creating unique experiences in unexpected places, beyond rides,” says 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.
