Schipol airport to launch Deliveroo service at gate

In the mood for a quick bite of pizza or sushi at the airport before boarding your flight? Starting now you can have it delivered right to your gate, Schipol has said.

Schiphol, Food & Beverage operator HMSHost International and food delivery company Deliveroo are launching a pilot in which passengers flying from Pier E can easily order food and drinks via their mobile phones. Within 15 minutes the meal will be delivered to the gate.

The wide range of meal options can additionally be ordered as room service at the Mercure Hotel located in Departure Lounge 3 – also beyond passport control. If the pilot is successful, it will be extended to Pier D in March. The parties have set up the ‘Food Delivery at the Gate’ pilot to test whether there is interest in this new service.

“Schiphol is always looking for ways to best serve its passengers. This is an extra service that we would like to offer them. Passengers spend a relatively large amount of time at their gate.

Although we of course have a diverse range of catering options in our piers, not everything is available. This initiative allows us to broaden the service we provide to our passengers, said Tanja Dik, Director of Consumer Products & Services at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.
