Easyjet has extended its partnership with luggage collection service Airportr, to include departures from London Luton airport.
The service allows customers to check in luggage at any central London address, ahead of departures from Luton, and costs from £40.
Easyjet passengers travelling from Gatwick have been able to use the Airportr service since July, and Randel Darby, CEO of AirPortr said that the expansion was “part of our plans with Easyjet to expand the service to other key locations across their network, enabling more passengers to travel to and through airports without being slowed down by baggage”.
Airportr launched with British Airways in 2016, and is available to all BA customers flying from Gatwick and Heathrow. It was subsequently extended to fellow Oneworld carrier American Airlines flights from Heathrow to the US, followed by Finnair services from Heathrow this summer.
A driver collects and weighs the luggage, scans passengers’ passports and boarding passes, and seals the luggage in coded, tamper-proof bags. Customers are sent IATA bag receipts after airport screening, around 90 minutes before take-off.
Airportr says that it has delivered over 80,000 bags, skis and bikes to more than 320 destinations airport baggage reclaims worldwide since the launch of the service.
