Passengers get a helping hand to narrow down their eating options at the UK's busiest airport.

In anticipation of an estimated 13.8 million people jetting off for their summer vacation – Heathrow Airport has teamed up with celebrity chefs to release their first ever food guide.

John Torode and GregWallace are the celebrity chefs behind ‘Food on the Fly’ –a guide that provides a comprehensive overview of the dining options at the UK’s only hub airport. 10,000 copies will be published and handed out to passengers passing through the airport – helping them to narrow down their options from the 73 bars, cafes and restaurants available at Heathrow.

The guide also features specially formulated guides such as top fives, breakdowns of options by terminal, and even advice about the types of food to eat or avoid before flying for the best possible experience.

Torode and Wallace compiled the guide using information they gathered while eating their way around the airport in 80 plates. The pair have put a strong emphasis on healthy eating options, smaller dishes to go with beverages, and British talent.

The head of food and beverage at Heathrow said:

“Food and travel go hand in hand – we want to make sure the meal you have at the airport is really enjoyable.”

With 26 million orders being placed at Heathrow’s restaurants and bars every year, it’s possible sample to enjoy fine dining such as Caviar Housem, Gordon Ramsay’s Plane Food, and Oriel, as well as more affordable options such as YO! Sushi, Strada and Carluccio’s.
