Food on the Fly

Heathrow has taken the unusual step of publishing a hard copy of its new 'Food on the Fly' airport dining guide ahead of the busy summer holiday period.  Patrons will find it vastly easier to use than hand held devices.  It has been created in conjunction with John Torode and Gregg Wallace – who were appointed as the airport's official taste buds earlier this year.

Providing a comprehensive overview of the dining options at the UK's only hub airport, 'Food on the Fly' reviews the 73 bars, cafés and restaurants at Heathrow and features a breakdown of the eateries by terminal.  There are also top tips available about the type of foods to eat or avoid before flying for those looking to travel well.

Every year 26m orders are placed at Heathrow's restaurants and bars, which include fine dining options such as Caviar House and Prunier, Gordon Ramsay's Plane Food, Oriel and rhubarb, as well as high street concepts redesigned specifically for travellers including YO! Sushi, Strada and Carluccio's.  The airport has also launched Frae – labelled by many as the best British frozen yoghurt specialist – in Terminal 5 for the summer season. www.heathrowairport.com/shop,-eat,-relax-and-enjoy/food-on-the-fly
