Yet Another Airport Adds Smartphone Food Ordering Straight to Your Gate

We’ve got a good feeling that many of you will find yourselves at the airport at some point during the holiday season. It may be on your way to visit friends and relatives, but we’re even more hopeful that you’re at the airport flying somewhere fun to avoid friends and relatives.

No matter how you end up at the airport you’re going to need a bite to eat while you’re wandering the terminals, so thankfully HMSHost and their food-from-your-phone technology is back with a new airport and new restaurants.

Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport joins airports like Minneapolis-St. Paul, New York-JFK, and Chicago-O’Hare with B4 You Board appcompatibility. This allows you to peruse menus and options from restaurants at the airport on your smartphone and then just send your order right over to the restaurant. Free delivery to the gate is included in the price, and then you’re free to chow down while waiting for your flight or carry your meal right onto the plane.

Available for both Androids and iPhones, the latest options at PHX give you access to spots like Barrio Café, Blanco Tacos and Tequila, Chelsea’s Kitchen, Cowboy Ciao, Dilly’s Deli, Focaccia Fiorentina, Modern Burger, and Olive and Ivy and Sauce. Some of those options sound like they could potentially be a little smelly for up in the air dining, so please just use some restraint before carrying more than a burger and fries onto the plane.
