Tired of running from restaurant to restaurant at the airport? Get anxious if you’re not at your gate at least 30 minutes before boarding? A little behind schedule? Well, if you’re flying from Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) any time soon, we might have just found a solution to your problems. With AtYourGate, you can sit back while the food comes to you.
AtYourGate is an app that launched originally earlier this year at San Diego International Airport (SAN). It functions as a sort of UberEats for the airport, in which food is ordered directly from an app and hand-delivered to the waiting traveler (or employee) at their gate within 20-30 minutes.
Now at Newark, service from the app is can be accessed in Terminal B at Gates 40-47, 51-57 and 60-68, so travelers can fill up on food before a long flight. Other 47 locations will also be hooked up to AtYourGate throughout Terminals A, B and C, however, B is currently the only one with post-security check, direct-to-gate delivery. Auntie Anne’s, Currito Burrito, Famous Famiglia, Jersey Mike’s, Manchu Wok, Sora Sushi Bar and Wendy’s are some of the restaurants participating in the AtYourGate service.
In a press release, AtYourGate stated that it plans to expand to more airports in the future.
Last year, TPG reviewed an app similar to AtYourGate: Grab. Grab is a skip-the-line service, in which travelers can order food via a mobile phone at designated airport restaurants and pick it up. So far, it’s operating in 21 airports including Atlanta (ATL), London Heathrow (LHR) and Los Angeles (LAX). There is also Airport Sherpa, which offers direct-to-gate delivery. However it works — if it reduces wait time, we’re fans.
