Passengers travelling on EasyJet from London Gatwick to Corvera Airport Murcia can now take advantage of bag collection, delivery and door-to-door services.
Arranged in partnership with baggage collection and delivery specialist Airportr, the initiative has initially been introduced for customers flying from London Gatwick and Geneva, and it will also be included for easyJet FLEXI fare customers.
According to the company, EasyJet thus becomes Europe’s first low-cost airline to offer this service. “Customers can now choose to check in their luggage from home, skip bag drop on departure and breeze past baggage collection on arrival. EasyJet also becomes the first airline to include the service in a bundle fare, meaning FLEXI fare customers flying from London Gatwick and Geneva have the service included in their booking.”
The airline is initially offering three services for customers at London Gatwick and Geneva airports:-
- Departure: customers flying from London Gatwick or Geneva can now check in their bags from a designated pick-up point (for example, home office or hotel), to be collected by an accredited driver and then collected from the baggage belt on arrival at their destination.
- Arrival: Customers arriving into Geneva from any EasyJet airport can book for delivery of their bags to their final destination (home, hotel, etc.).
- Door-to-door: customers flying from London Gatwick to Geneva can book a door-to-door service – “a totally seamless luggage experience that means customers can check in their bags from home and see them delivered to their final destination”.
The services are available for flights to any of EasyJet’s destinations across Europe from the airline’s biggest U.K. base at London Gatwick (and from Geneva) from £37 at www.airportr.com/en/easyjet. The first 300 customers will receive 30 per cent off their booking by using the code: 30OFFAIRPORTRLAUNCH
Commenting on the new service, EasyJet chief commercial officer Sophie Dekkera said, “We are always looking at how we can innovate with the products and services we offer to ensure we are providing more of the choices our customers want, so we are excited to be introducing Airportr’s services initially from London Gatwick and Geneva, to help make travel even easier for our customers, whether they are flying for business or leisure.”
Added Airportr CEO Randel Darby, “Today’s announcement that we’re launching Airportr across two of EasyJet’s top-tier airports marks another significant step forward for off-airport baggage management. Travellers continue to prioritise speed and convenience and are increasingly turning to off-airport processes to achieve it. As an airline, EasyJet is committed to getting their customers through the airport faster, whilst delivering the best experience when travelling with baggage. We’re delighted that Airportr can support EasyJet on this mission, with bag-free travel now possible to, through and from airports.”
