“Edmonton International Airport is very proud to host Boston Pizza’s first airport location worldwide. Boston Pizza is a hometown success that started in Edmonton and grew to be loved across Canada and beyond, while HMSHost operates restaurants in over 100 airports worldwide and brings extensive expertise in travel dining. That’s a winning formula, and the biggest winners are our passengers, who are really excited to see Boston Pizza, a family favourite as a new airport option,” said Myron Keehn, Vice President of Commercial Development at Edmonton International Airport.
