Subway® Rises Above the Rest with a Flying Footlong

-- Capping off its biggest Refresh yet, Subway is serving up new Deli Heroes and breathtaking views with a Subway restaurant in the sky --

MIAMI, Aug. 29, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Subway unveils the Subway in the Sky: a new dining experience onboard a blimp and a thrilling capstone to its latest Eat Fresh® Refresh launch. Taking to the skies on September 1, America can experience the heights Subway has reached since it began its transformation journey in 2021.

The vessel embodies The Beast, one of the new Deli Hero subs introduced in July that boasts a half pound of its new freshly sliced meat. Underneath the nearly 180-foot-long footlong, Subway transformed the gondola into a floating restaurant that accommodates up to six sandwich lovers per trip.  

The Subway in the Sky will stop in cities across the U.S. as it soars through the sky in September, including Kansas City, Atlanta, Orlando and Miami.* Up to 40 Subway fans per day will enjoy a sandwich 'flight' of all four Deli Hero subs on board the blimp as they float 1,000 feet above the ground.

In addition to the Subway in the Sky rides, Subway is giving fans a chance go to Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas with a Subway in the Sky online game by visiting or scanning a QR code in their local Subway restaurant.** People can take a daily spin on the blimp-themed slot machine that enters them in a sweepstakes for a chance to win a Super Bowl trip and unlocks a chance at special discounts on Deli Hero subs, like $5.99 footlongs or 15% off.

The Subway in the Sky reinforces a summer of exciting changes at all U.S. restaurants following the debut of freshly sliced meats and Deli Hero subs, a major expansion and new category in its Subway Series menu.
