PHL Food & Shops, the Philadelphia International Airport concessions programme, is now offering kerbside pick-up for food and retail items through a contactless ordering solution.

The solution originally offered pick-up and delivery options post-security, but recently added kerbside collection to its offering. Addition of the kerbside facility means that anyone can use the service. Those who are not ticketed passengers can browse, pre-order and pay for items from participating airport eateries and retailers and pick up their items at the Employee Bus Stop Lot on Departures Road, Terminal E.

"We’re excited to provide a convenient kerbside pick-up option for individuals to pick up their items without having to leave their cars," said Mel Hannah, vice-president and general manager of MarketPlace PHL. "Whether you’re picking up a loved one, waiting in baggage claim or the cell phone lot, offers a quick and easy solution to ordering airport favourites right from a mobile device."

All delivery and kerbside pick-up is provided by the AtYourGate in-airport food and retail delivery service.
