Europe's First Luggage Transfer Service Launches at London City Airport

22/05/2014

A brand new service for air travellers launches today [22 May] at London City Airport (LCY). The first business of its kind in Europe, AirPortr provides a secure luggage transfer service, designed to enable passengers to travel lighter and more easily.

Bookable in advance or on the day, international and domestic visitors can leave their bags with AirPortr’s on-site concierge on arrival at LCY and head straight to their meeting or event without the burden of bulky bags. Their luggage is then delivered, and will be waiting for them, at their hotel, office or serviced apartment.

On an outbound journey, bags may be collected and delivered to the airport ready and waiting for the passengers to arrive for check in. All outbound baggage is scanned off-site before delivery to ensure security, in addition to the usual airport checks.

Features include:

Matthew Hall, Chief Commercial Officer at London City Airport said: “Almost two thirds of passengers using London City Airport are business travellers, choosing LCY for the convenience it offers. The airport is within easy reach of Canary Wharf, the City and central London (all under 25 minutes by public transport), and departing passengers can transit from door to gate in no more than 20 minutes while arriving passengers can make it from tarmac to train in 15 minutes. The new baggage collection and delivery service from AirPortr makes it even easier for business people to get the most out of their trip while enjoying a trouble-free journey outside the airport.”

Randel Darby, AirPortr CEO and Founder said: “Time is so valuable so not having to worry about taking your luggage from meeting to meeting, avoiding taking a taxi in rush hour traffic, not going to your hotel before your first meeting saves valuable time and enables you to be more focused.”

AirPortr is described as an affordable luxury, with two bags delivered from London City Airport to the West End for £30.
