Bag-free Travel Lands at Gatwick Airport
Portr, a London-based travel tech start-up has just launched its AirPortr luggage transfer service at London Gatwick.
Gatwick passengers can now travel bag-free for quicker and lighter journeys by using the same-day, on demand, luggage service. AirPortr provides this from the passenger’s home, workplace or holiday destination within London, Gatwick and surrounding/ connecting London corridor (subject to conditions).
AirPortr’s team of concierges and drivers collect and deliver passengers’ baggage between their location and the airport within hours and at a time suited to them.
Departing travellers will no longer have to factor in extra time carrying their heavy luggage when they are flying in the afternoon or evening. So they can make the most of their departure day.
Arriving passengers can also leave their luggage to the service and are then free to do what they want before heading to their accommodation.
An example price is £30 for two bags, whatever their size or weight, delivered to or from the airport into Central London.
Gatwick Product Manager for Premium and Business Services, Toby Tait, said: “Gatwick is always striving to make our passengers’ travel through our airport quick, convenient and hassle-free.
“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.”
Head of Customer Experience at Portr, 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.
More time to do what you want and need to do versus having your luggage inconveniently dictating your itinerary i.e. what we like to think is truly travelling with ‘Luggage Freedom’.”
The luggage delivery service can be booked in advance or on the day of travel.
