Europe’s leading airline easyJet has launched a new luggage collection, delivery, and door-to-door service in partnership with baggage collection and delivery specialist Airportr, providing passengers traveling from London Gatwick and Geneva the option to check in their luggage from home, skip bag drop on departure, and breeze past baggage collection on arrival.

The airline has partnered with Airportr to introduce this new choice to help make travel even easier, following research that showed 40% of easyJet customers would be interested in these services when they travel to and from their flights.
The airline will initially offer 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 like your home office or hotel, which will be collected by an accredited driver and then collected from the baggage belt on arrival at their destination.
- Arrival: Customers arriving in Geneva from any easyJet airport can book a delivery of their bags to their final destination, like their home or hotel.
- 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.
easyJet also becomes the first airline to include the service in a bundled fare, meaning FLEXI fare customers flying from London Gatwick and Geneva have the service included in their booking.
The services are available for flights to any of easyJet’s destinations across Europe from the airline’s biggest UK base London Gatwick, and from Switzerland’s largest airport, Gevena, for just £37 at www.airportr.com/en/easyjet. The first 300 customers will receive 30% off their booking by using the code 30OFFAIRPORTRLAUNCH
Sophie Dekkers, Chief Commercial Officer at easyJet, commented: 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.”
Randel Darby, CEO of Airportr, said: “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. Travelers continue to prioritize 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 while 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.
Since 2016, Airportr has collected over 250,000 bags and sports equipment that have been checked in and delivered to hundreds of destination airport baggage reclaims around the world. easyJet is confident this new service will prove popular to customers. Since starting up, 8,100 customers have given Airportr a 4 or 5-star rating, and 9.6/10 customers are likely to recommend the service to others.
The new baggage collection and delivery service further builds on easyJet’s recent customer initiatives to make it easier for customers when flying with the airlines, including the introduction of Twilight Bag Drop, available at London Gatwick, Bristol, Manchester, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Berlin, and Amsterdam, which means customers on early flights can drop their bags off the night before.
