Fly Vegan: Denver Soars to First Place in Annual Airport Food Review

Travelers passing through 18 of the nation’s busiest airports can find healthful vegan meals in most terminals. The Physicians Committee’s 13th annual Airport Food Review found that 76 percent of restaurants offer at least one cholesterol-free, plant-based entrée.

The number of airport restaurants offering healthful nutrient-packed foods, such as leafy green salads, veggie wraps, and black bean burgers, has steadily increased since 2001, when PCRM’s inaugural airport food review found just 57 percent of airport eateries offering at least one healthful option.

Denver International Airport topped the report with a score of 86 percent. Washington National Airport made the most impressive gain, with a 14-point increase, and tied with Los Angeles International as the third healthiest airport this year.

But healthful food choices remain harder to find in some airports. Las Vegas McCarran International Airport took a nosedive, with a 23-point decrease from last year’s score. Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson lost seven points and finished last with a score of 51 percent.
