Passengers at Gothenburg Landvetter Airport can shop for groceries online and pick them up at the airport after their flight.
The trial allows people to order their groceries online and then choose to pick them up outside the arrival hall at Göteborg Landvetter Airport.
In a first for Sweden, the airport is trialling the service with supermarket chain Coop.
Passengers do their shopping online www.coop.se and can choose Göteborg Landvetter as their pick-up point. They choose the day and time they want to pick up their order. The delivery truck from coop.se will be outside the airport’s arrival hall.
Orders can be placed at www.coop.se by 11:59 p.m. at the latest on the day before the order is picked up. Groceries can be picked up Monday to Friday, 4:00-7:00 p.m.
Charlotte Ljunggren, director of marketing and commercial business at Swedavia, the operator of the airport:
“We are pleased that Coop has chosen Göteborg Landvetter has the first site in Sweden for its launch. This service is something that many passengers have asked for in order to avoid coming home to an empty fridge after their trip.
“Airports are ideal for launching new set-ups, with more than 19,000 daily passengers a day who are open to trying something new. We therefore consider it an ideal venue for working in partnership with Coop.”
During the trial period, Coop wants to see how the service is received by passengers and how it complements Coop Online’s full range of products. In the next phase, there is the option of setting up similar solutions at other sites and hubs in Sweden.
