FUNCTION OF AIRPORTR
Airportr works as “concierge” system to deliver the passengers’ luggage for fee based on the weight and number of luggage; extra fee applies if the luggage does not meet the concerned airport requirements. Approximately, the prices begin at 15 Euros per bag and an additional 5 Euro applies for additional bags; the latter is applicable for sports equipment and such.
Passengers can use the Airportr service by registering their requirements at Portr.com with a 1-hour pickup slot. Passengers can track their bags on the airline and government-approved service via a unique barcode which will be provided on the baggage pickup after the confirmation of the passengers’ airline ticket. The service comes with free cancellation and free changes as well.
