You can locate restaurants and food shops at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport by clicking on the relevant terminal map on the airport's website, locating your current position, and identifying nearby businesses, as of 2015. Nearby businesses help establish the direction you must travel to reach your chosen food store.
Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport's map identifies restaurants and food stores within the different terminals by means of icons. You should note whether food stores are located before or beyond the airport's security checkpoints. This airport has many of its food providers in the main area before you go through security. More food options are available past the security checkpoints in individual terminals. As airport authorities may not let you out of gate areas during boarding or let you take food through the security checkpoint, you should plan your meals accordingly.
The online map offers other aids, such as a map compass. In addition to being available online, copies of terminal maps are often available in different sections of the terminals. These often have an icon identifying your current location, which you then can use to establish your trajectory.
In addition to restaurants identified on the airport map, some of the regular shops and specialty shops within the terminals sell food or snack items.
