Meet NomNom: LAX introduces new food delivery robot

There is a new way to get food at LAX. Meet NomNom… a touchless food delivery bot.

According to LAX, NomNom is a two-wheeled robot cargo carrier that will carry food and beverage deliveries to passengers at select gates. 

NomNom accompanies a staff member who places food items inside the carrier and helps deliver it to passengers. According to a video posted online by LAX, Nomnom is used as an extra set of hands to help staff members. 

Passengers can place a food order via LAX’s online system

The bot was introduced ahead of the busy Labor Day weekend. LAX officials stated Wednesday that this holiday weekend is expected to be twice as busy as last year.
