AirPortr and London Gatwick announced that the London-based travel tech start-up has just launched its AirPortr luggage transfer service at the airport.
Gatwick passengers can now take advantage of the same-day, on demand luggage service which provides bag-free travel to and from their home, workplace or holiday destination within London, Gatwick and surrounding/ connecting London corridor.
AirPortr’s team of concierges and drivers collect and deliver passengers’ often baggage between their location and the airport within hours and at a time suited to them. Passengers can now travel bag-free, resulting in quicker, lighter and stress free journeys.
Departing passengers with an afternoon or evening flight can be free to make the most of their departure day, leaving it later before making the journey to the airport as they no longer have to factor in extra time carrying their heavy luggage.
Arriving passengers offload their bags with the AirPortr team when they land and travel straight to their destination, avoiding carrying luggage around with them all day.
The luggage delivery service can be booked in advance or on the day of travel.
Each booking is covered for £10,000, and there are no amendment or cancellation fees.
How it works
Passengers book online on any device before they travel. If heading to the airport AirPortr collect the luggage from hotel, home or office at an agreed time. Passengers flying into London, leave your luggage at the airport with one of the concierges at the AirPortr desk.

The baggage is GPS tracked in real-time from a user’s smartphone. Passengers receive delivery updates by text/ email.
