San Diego International Airport will be the first in the U.S. to offer airport-wide gate delivery service for passengers.
The San Diego County Regional Airport Authority selected AtYourGate as the preferred service provider.
Travelers can pre-order food or retail items from inside the airport using the mobile ordering app Grab. The food or items will then be delivered directly to the passenger's gate by AtYourGate.
“We continually seek to raise the bar on customer satisfaction, and one way we do that is by embracing new technologies that push the envelope,” said Rick Belliotti, Director of Innovation and Small Business Development at San Diego International Airport. “AtYourGate has the right formula to deliver a high-quality service that can change the way people experience air travel – a cornerstone of our Innovation Lab."
The service is currently in the developmental stage and is expected to launch this summer.
