In Oslo, take street food onto the plane

Five food trucks have positioned themselves at Oslo Gardermoen Airport after security.

Five food trucks have set themselves up at Oslo’s Gardermoen Airport after security, offering a range of street-food style snacks from different corners of the globe.

Collectively called the Food Truck Festival, the trucks have opened their doors to offer pulled pork, pizza, tortillas and smoothies. The ‘festival’ dates appear to be open-ended.

“The Food Truck Festival is a concept inspired by global and Norwegian food trends,” explains Per Rune Lunderby, the airport’s commercial manager.

“The festival is designed to inject an urban, vibrant atmosphere inspired by the streets of Oslo into the airport and we are hoping that it will deliver a great experience for travellers.”

It is based around five trucks serving a variety of food, located in the area just after passport control. The concept represents a conscious effort, as airport operator Avinor puts it, to provide a better service to travellers in Oslo.

The food trucks are Pizza Wheel, serving Neapolitan pizza, Number Juan and its authentic Mexican street food, Joyride’s smoothies, salads, sandwiches and fruit, Egghead and Roasted serving rolls filled with egg, bacon, pulled pork and other meats, and Tailgate’s light bites and drinks.

Take it on board
The man behind the new concept is convinced it will be well received.

“We can now offer international street food with menus that vary both in size and in price, featuring food that can be served directly from the truck,” says Per Christensen, managing director of HMSHost-Umoe F&B Company.

“You can either eat in the large restaurant area on the second floor or take your food with you to the gate or onto the aircraft. The food is served in a way that makes it easy to take with you on board.”
