Luggage transfer service AirPortr to launch at Heathrow before Christmas

Luggage transfer service AirPortr will launch at Heathrow ahead of Christmas, giving agents the chance to earn commission on bag transfers to and from a trio of London airports.

The company will collect and deliver passengers’ bags to and from Heathrow’s Terminal 3 and 5 to and from anywhere within the M25 motorway around London. It charges £25 to central London, with additional bags £5 each.

The launch on December 14 follows the service’s move into Gatwick South in July. It started up at London City more than a year ago.

Commission depends on volume of bookings but agents “can expect to make £3-£5 per average booking”, according to AirPortr head of marketing, Chris Walsh, who said: “We set agents up with a digital interface so they have their own booking dashboard.”

Passengers can also book and pay at the airport or online and track their bags by smartphone.

AirPortr staff will collect and hand over bags at multiple points at the Heathrow terminals rather than only at dedicated desks.

The company scans all bags and aims to deliver when the customer needs it delivering. It will extend into Heathrow Terminals 2 and 4 next year and to Gatwick North from February.
