London’s new travel technology startup, AirPortr, has partnered with American Airlines to offer mobile luggage check-in and delivery service on all American Airlines flights to the US from Heathrow.

Following a recent £2million investment from Stobart Group and a successful launch with British Airways, the delivery service will now be available on 300 daily flights out of London.

The partnership invites customers flying on any of American Airlines’ 20 daily flights from Heathrow to the US to have their luggage securely checked-in from any London address, removing the stresses of transporting their bags across the capital and checking-in at the airport.

The company’s CEO, Randel Darby, said: “Partnering with the world’s largest airline, American Airlines, means we can serve more customers and takes us one step further in establishing mobile luggage check-in as a new standard in the air travel experience. “American Airlines opens our service up to more passengers travelling from London to the United States and helps us better serve customers booking with American’s transatlantic joint business partner British Airways.”

The airline’s passengers flying into Heathrow can also have their luggage delivered to and from their central London hotels, allowing them to enjoy more luggage-free time in the city, regardless of their check-out or flight times. Following an upgrade to the digital experience, customers can now instantly approve any excess luggage charges for overweight baggage via the AirPortr service on their doorstep. Randel Darby said:

“With more than 50,000 bags safely and securely delivered, AirPortr has been truly embraced by Londoners. From families juggling oversized luggage and leisure travellers flying with sports equipment, to young professionals not wanting to be that person with luggage during rush-hour, we’ve struck a chord with people wanting to take the hassle out of getting their bags to and through the airport.”

Luggage check-in and deliveries starting at £30 per item for the first item and £10 thereafter.
