Airport in Sweden offers a new lunchtime alternative to prove how far airport food has really come.

Eating airport food out of choice is something that most people would not be willing to do, but Stockholm Arlanda Airport is hoping to change all that by proving just how far food in airports has come.

As part of their latest marketing initiative, the company has introduced Arlanda Food Trucks & Co to bring the best meals directly to Stockholm residents inside the city. Some of the options include lasagna, risotto, ramen soup with wasabi-marinated smoked salmon, pulled pork, and oven-braised veal.

All of the meals on offer are prepared in the truck, but any dish you can buy from the truck, is also available from one of Arlanda’s fifty restaurants and bars. The mobile food stalls are only open at lunchtime, and you can buy any of the meals for just $10.

As reported by Skift, Michael Persson Gripkow, chief commercial and marketing officer at Swedavia, said:

Above all, we hope we can inspire more people to get to the airport well in advance to discover the broad array of food on offer.

Airports have started to allow local food trucks to open shop within their grounds, mainly as a way to showcase local cuisine and improve the airport experience. But, this seems to be the first instance when airports have looked to go outside their own walls and offer up food to local residents.

While it might not appeal at first, there is no denying the wide range of options on offer from these mobile restaurants. Something that could quite easily become another lunch option for people looking to find a convenient, affordable, and edible option.
