European airline easyJet has announced the launch of a partnership with home bag drop service AirPortr, giving passengers travelling from London Gatwick the option to check their luggage in online and then have it collected from their doorstep and delivered to the airport, the company said.
Research shows that over three quarters of travellers would prefer to be luggage free for the day of their flight, which is why easyJet and AirPortr have partnered to provide this service allowing travellers start their trips at home.
easyJet carries over 83 million passengers annually, of which more than 13 million are travelling on business. easyJet flies 308 aircraft on more than 1000 routes to 154 airports across 33 countries. More than 300 million Europeans live within one hour´s drive of an easyJet airport.
AirPortr enables thousands of passengers to experience bag-less, stress-free travel every month. Since 2016, AirPortr has transported over 69,000 bags, skis and bikes to more than 320 destination airport baggage reclaims around the world.
