easyJet, Europe’s leading airline, has launched a partnership with home bag drop service AirPortr, giving passengers travelling from London Gatwick the option to check their luggage in online and then have it collected from their doorstep by friendly, professional drivers and taken directly to the airport.
Research shows that over three quarters of travellers would prefer to be luggage free for the day of their flight, which is why easyJet and AirPortr have partnered to provide this service allowing travellers start their trips at home.
AirPortr will pick up luggage from the passenger’s doorstep, and safely deliver it to easyJet’s bag drop before it is flown to one of the airline’s 110 destinations from Gatwick. Customers can then collect their baggage at their destination’s baggage reclaim.
Since 2016, AirPortr has collected over 69,000 bags, skis and bikes which have been checked-in and delivered to more than 320 destination airport baggage reclaims around the world. easyJet is confident this new service will help make travelling even easier for its passengers.
The service is available for flights to any of easyJet’s destinations across Europe from London Gatwick, the airline’s biggest UK base. The premium product allows passengers to check in a piece of luggage and choose a 1 hour pick-up time slot for as little as £30. Alternatively, a £40 value product offers tremendous value for money, and includes collection of up to 4 pieces of luggage within a 3 hour window.
Andrew Middleton, Director of Ancillary Revenue at easyJet, said:
“We are excited to be introducing AirPortr’s services to our passengers, starting with Gatwick services. Whether a flight is for business or leisure, we are confident the home bag drop service is a fantastic initiative to improve a traveller’s experience.
“easyJet is proud to continue to develop our product offering with innovative companies such as AirPortr."
Randel Darby, CEO of AirPortr, said:
“Particularly when flying short-haul with hold luggage, a disproportionate amount of journey time can be spent on the ground getting to and through the airport. We’re delighted to work with easyJet to overcome this, starting their passengers’ journey at home, saving valuable time and providing hassle free travel, all at an affordable price.
“With easyJet’s reputation for leading digital innovation, we will see the service integrated into the customer journey in new ways, such as being offered alongside great baggage fares when booking a flight.
“We’re proud to be working with an airline with a start-up mentality but Europe-wide scale, as we continue to lead the development of at-home bag check-in services.”
