easyJet 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 and taken directly to the airport.
AirPortr will pick up luggage from customers’ homes and deliver it to easyJet’s bag drop before it is flown to one of the airline’s 110 destinations from Gatwick. Travellers will not see their luggage until they arrive at their destination airport.
The airline says that research has revealed that over three quarters of travellers would prefer to be luggage-free for the day of their flight.
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.
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. The cost for this service starts at £30.
