Philadelphia ranked among top US airports for healthy eating

Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) has been named one of the healthiest airports in the USA by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine for its healthy eating options.

The committee, a non-profit advocacy group of physicians that promotes nutrition’s critical role in preventative medicine, ranked PHL third, tied with San Francisco International Airport, out of 24 airports surveyed. Throughout all seven terminals, 82% of PHL’s restaurants offer healthy meals and received special recognition from the committee.

The Committee conducted its study by surveying registered dieticians and considering several healthy-eating criteria, including the availability of cholesterol-free, plant-based and fiber-packed meals. PHL jumped up eight spots on the list this year, after tying for 11th place in the 2014 survey.

“We are pleased to offer healthy food alternatives to our health-conscious travelers,” said airport CEO Mark Gale. “This is a reflection of our vision of creating an environment that caters to the health and well-being of our customers.”

“MarketPlace PHL is proud to provide healthy dining options that span many different cuisines, from grab-and-go entrées to sit-down meals,” said Mel Hannah, vice president and general manager of Philadelphia MarketPlace, the private partner with the City of Philadelphia in the management of the food and retail program throughout PHL. “To be included among the top three healthiest airports in the USA is a testament to our diverse line-up of food offerings.”
