Food delivery firm Deliveroo has announced the launch of a service that will deliver food straight to customers at boarding gates at Dubai International Airport (DXB).
Passengers simply place an order on Deliveroo’s app, website, or via the link on DXB’s free Wi-Fi service.
Eugene Barry, executive vice president of Dubai Airports’ Commercial and Communications group, said: “DeliverooDXB is a truly ground-breaking service that brings an extra level of convenience to our customers. Our mission to completely reinvent the airport experience is rooted in implementing innovative concepts, as demonstrated by this partnership with the world’s best food delivery brand.
“Now passengers can receive delicious food from our food & beverage outlets while they wait to board, all made possible by the expertise of Deliveroo and our world-beating Wow-Fi service.”
His views were echoed by Anis Harb, Deliveroo general manager, GCC.
He said: “Deliveroo’s mission is to provide the best food delivery experience in the world, and there is no reason why that should be limited to the home or office. Joining forces with Dubai Airports is a strategic next step for us as we continue to revolutionise the way people order restaurant food.
“With our riders now delivering to the gate, there is no reason to miss breakfast, lunch or dinner even when passengers may only have minutes to spare before boarding.”
The service is currently available for passengers in DXB Terminal 3, A-Gates, with over 10 participating outlets including Costa, Giraffe, Café Chocolate, Picnic, Paul Bakery & Restaurant, Pulp Juice, Carluccio’s, Le Pain Quotidien and McDonald’s.
After six months, Dubai Airports will look to roll-out the service across further outlets and concourses at DXB.
