Airport’s TPA to Go mobile-ordering program partners with Uber Eats

  • TPA is the first U.S. airport to officially partner with Uber Eats for mobile ordering.
  • Travelers may use the popular mobile app or go online to order food, drinks and other items for pickup at Tampa International Airport’s award-winning restaurants.

Travelers have a new option right at their fingertips for skipping the lines at many of Tampa International Airport’s restaurants and shops, just in time for Spring Break.

The Airport’s TPA to Go mobile-ordering program, which allows guests to purchase food, drinks and other items in advance for pickup, is now available on Uber Eats, thanks to a new partnership with the company.

Users can place an order quickly and reliably ahead of time at 18 restaurants and 4 retailers, which can be a welcome time-saving option, especially during Spring Break, which is TPA’s busiest travel season of the year. The Airport expects as many as 90,000 passengers on peak days during the period between March 7 and April 10.

TPA to Go is available to anyone at or headed to the Airport, including passengers, flight crews and Airport staff. Travelers can set TPA as their location before they arrive, choose items from their favorite eatery or shop and have it ready for pickup when they get there (delivery within the Airport is not an option).

“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."

Guests can access TPA to Go at the Airport by:

  • using the Uber Eats app or accessing ubereats.com
  • logging onto TPAtoGo.com
  • scanning the QR code posted throughout Airport signage

TPA is Uber’s first official U.S. airport partner, after working successfully at Toronto Pearson Airport in Canada and pilot programs at John Glenn Columbus International Airport in Ohio and Charlotte Douglas International Airport in North Carolina.

“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.”
