AirPortr luggage concierge service comes to Gatwick

27 Jul 2015 by GrahamSmith

Portr has launched a luggage transfer service at London Gatwick.

The AirPortr facility, which can be booked in advance or on the day of travel, allows passengers to have their baggage either delivered to or collected from the airport.

Pricing is organised into three zones - airport local (£15), central London (£25) and outer London (£35). To view a map of these zones, click here.

Each additional bag costs £5. There are no size or weight restrictions in place.

AirPortr is currently operating at LGW's South Terminal and will be set-up at North Terminal later this year.

Chris Walsh, head of customer experience at AirPortr, said: "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."

The AirPortr service also comes with real-time GPS tracking, no amendment or cancellation fees, and email/text message updates. Each booking is covered for £10,000.

Last year, BA teamed up with Portr to offer Executive Club members the AirPortr service at London City airport (see news, October 2014).
