Airport Food Review



Nation’s Top Airports Offer More Plant-Based Meals

PCRM’s 2012 Airport Food Review found that 76 percent of restaurants in 18 of the nation’s busiest airports offer at least one low-fat, cholesterol-free, vegetarian meal. But healthful food choices are harder to find at some airports.

The number of airport restaurants offering healthful foods has increased from 2001, when PCRM’s inaugural airport food review found just 57 percent of airport eateries offering at least one healthful option. Newark Liberty International Airport ranks at the top of the 2012 report for the first time with a score of 92 percent. Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson lost 13 points this year and remains in last place with a score of 58 percent.
