London based Portr has launched an AirPortr luggage transfer service at Gatwick airport to provide passengers with bag free flying. This adds to its existing service at London City airport which has been in operation since 2014.

Gatwick passengers can  take advantage of same-day, on demand luggage delivery which provides bag-free travel to and from their home, workplace or holiday destination within London, Gatwick and selected London post codes.

AirPortr’s team of concierges collect and deliver passengers’  baggage between their location and the airport at an agreed time allowing passengers to travel to and from Gatwick without the burden of 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 AirPortr service is priced as ‘affordable’ by Portr giving an example of two bags whatever their size or weight delivered to or from the airport into Central London for £30.


Gatwick Product Manager for Premium and Business Services Toby Tait said:“Gatwick is always striving to make our passengers’ travel through our airport quick, convenient and hassle-free.“The arrival of AirPortr now means that the convenience our passengers experience at the airport extends to their travel to and from Gatwick. Carrying heavy bags on the journey to and from the airport can now be a thing of the past for our passengers.”

 Head of Customer Experience at Portr Chris Walsh said:“Since launching the AirPortr experience we have overwhelmingly seen how the service literally changes the way people now plan and make their journeys.

 “Of course we are in the business of same day luggage delivery and ensuring your bags travel when and where you want them, but really AirPortr is all about the time and convenience aspect of the service that we in reality aspire to deliver. “More time to do what you want and need to do versus having your luggage inconveniently dictating your itinerary i.e. what we like to think is truly travelling with ‘Luggage Freedom’.”

Each additional bag costs £5 (with no size or weight restrictions).

The luggage delivery service which is also available at London City airport can be booked in advance or on the day of travel
