Pilot program among Toronto Pearson, Uber Eats, and HMSHost to serve International and Domestic passengers in Terminal 3
Toronto Pearson, Uber Eats and HMSHost have partnered to bring Uber Eats to Toronto Pearson’s Terminal 3 International and Domestic Departures area.
Greater Toronto Airports Authority, the company that operates Toronto Pearson International Airport, said the collaboration allows travellers to use its on-demand food delivery app – Uber Eats iOS iPhone or Android app – to order food from HMSHost restaurants and have it delivered right to their gate.
Passengers can order burgers, burritos and smoked meat to shawarma, shepherd’s pie and fish and chips, travellers from Caplansky’s Deli, Paramount Fine Foods, Smoke’s Burritorie, Smashburger or Fionn MacCools.
Toronto Pearson served 49.5 million passengers in 2018, making it Canada’s largest airport and the second-busiest North American international airport.
HMSHost, a leading provider in dining for travel venues, received several honours at The Moodie Davitt Report’s prestigious 2018 Airport Food & Beverage (FAB) Awards, including the Airport Casual Dining Restaurant of the Year (Winner) for The Hearth by Lynn Crawford at Toronto Pearson International Airport.
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.
