Oslo Airport has opened a new Food Truck Festival concept, offering a wide range of worldwide cuisine, in partnership with HMSHost-Umoe F&B Company, a joint venture between Umoe Restaurants and HMSHost International.
Per Rune Lunderby, Commercial Manager at Avinor Oslo Airport: “The Food Truck Festival is a concept inspired by global and Norwegian food trends. 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.”
Food Truck Festival has been designed with the idea of bringing the ‘downtown Oslo’ feel to the airport, and at the same time cater for the needs of people on the move through five restaurants – Joyride, The Pizza Wheel, Number Juan, Cracked/Roasted and Tailgate. Each of them is housed in a different styled truck, creating an exciting experience for customers.
The festival is based around five trucks serving a variety of food and located in the area just after passport control.
The concept represents a conscious effort by Avinor to provide a better service to the travellers that it serves in Oslo.
“We are delighted that we have finally been able to open this area and with it offer a more improved range of food and drink choices beyond passport control. Anyone travelling to countries outside the Schengen Area can look forward to some real culinary treats,” adds Lunderby.
The five food trucks serve a wide variety of international cuisine including Neapolitan pizza, mini burgers and authentic Mexican food.
Per Christensen, Managing Director of HMSHost-Umoe F&B Company: “We are pleased that we can offer international street food with menus that vary both in size and in price, featuring food that can be served directly from the truck. 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.”
Oslo Airport is now home to over 40 restaurants offering a rich and varied service for all travellers.
