A brand new service for air travellers has been launched 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 in a similar fashion 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.
Tamper secure seals are applied to luggage on handover and the service includes real-time GPS tracking.
Randel Darby, CEO and Founder of AirPortr, 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." http://portr.com
