A London-based travel tech start-up has launched a luggage transfer service at Gatwick Airport.
The AirPortr service provides same-day bag-free travel to and from their home, workplace or holiday destination within London, Gatwick and surrounding/connecting London area.
Concierges and drivers collect and deliver passengers’ baggage between their location and the airport within hours.
Two bags regardless of size or weight can be delivered to or from the airport to central London for £30. The fee for a single bag is £25.
The luggage delivery service can be booked in advance or on the day of travel and is available in the airport’s South Terminal. A North Terminal outlet is due to open later in the year.
Toby Tait, Gatwick’s product manager for premium and business services, said: “The arrival of AirPortr now means that the convenience our passengers experience at the airport extends to their travel to and from Gatwick.
“Carrying heavy bags on the journey to and from the airport can now be a thing of the past for our passengers.”
AirPortr head of customer experience, Chris Walsh, said: “Since launching the AirPortr experience we have overwhelmingly seen how the service literally changes the way people now plan and make their journeys.
“Of course we are in the business of same day luggage delivery and ensuring your bags travel when and where you want them, but really AirPortr is all about the time and convenience aspect of the service that we in reality aspire to deliver.”
