FRANCISCO, March 7, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Uber
Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: UBER) announced a new partnership with
Tampa International Airport,
bringing mobile ordering to the airport's more than 21 million
visitors and workers each year.
TPA is Uber's first official US airport

Tampa Airport International Airport is Uber's first official US
airport partner, after successful operations at the Toronto Pearson
Airport and pilots at John Glenn International Airport and
Charlotte Douglas International Airport. With this expansion,
consumers will be able to order ahead and skip the line at more
than 20 concession locations. Uber One members will enjoy their
benefits at Tampa International
Airport, which includes discounts on eligible orders.
A top pain-point for travelers can be getting their food, drink
or other last-minute items quickly when they might have only a few
minutes to spare before boarding a flight. This frustration
is shared by airport staff from flight crews to security officers,
who might have only a short lunch break. Uber Eats at
Airports now gives consumers greater control of their travel day or
work schedule, getting what they need quickly and reliably.
"At Uber, we know how busy airports can be and that sometimes
travel can be stressful," said Rob
Mitchell, Head of Airports Business Development at Uber.
"That's why we're excited to give travelers and folks who work at
the airport a lot more convenience and a little less stress when
they're hungry by bringing Uber Eats skip-the-line mobile ordering
technology at restaurant and retail locations at Tampa International Airport."
"We're thrilled that TPA travelers can now enjoy greater and
more convenient access to our award-winning concessions program,"
Airport VP of Concessions and Commercial Parking Laurie Noyes said.
"Our partnership with Uber Eats is another way we're elevating the
guest experience by making shopping and dining at TPA easier and
faster, which is a great value for our customers."
Consumers can use Uber Eats at Airports by downloading the Uber
Eats app or by using ubereats.com on their mobile device.
