Apr 5 2019, 3:13 am

Travelling through Pearson just got a whole lot more delicious.

As part of a first-of-its-kind pilot program, Uber Eats is delivering to customers right to their gate at Toronto Pearson Airport.

Phone-ordered eats will be available for pickup until October at the Terminal 3 International and Domestic Departures area.

Using the Uber Eats iOS iPhone or Android app, passengers can have food from the likes of HMSHost eateries Caplansky’s Deli, Paramount Fine Foods, Smoke’s Burritorie, Smashburger or Fionn MacCools delivered right to their gate.

From burgers, burritos and smoked meat to shawarma, shepherd’s pie and fish and chips, these options are extensive and definitely add some extra oomph to the idea of waiting for a flight.
