AirAsia has now become the first airline to introduce door-to-door baggage service for its passengers, Bangalore Mirror reports. The AirAsia FlyPorter service is initially available in Bengaluru, New Delhi, and Hyderabad. It starts with an introductory price of ₹500 for one-way delivery to or from the airport.
The service can be availed up to 24 hours before the departure of the flight. It also includes insurance of ₹5,000 per baggage item for the contents and container. This service is available to guests through flyporter.carterporter.in.
The FlyPorter Service
The airline stated, “The FlyPorter service gives passengers flying with AirAsia India the luxury of doorstep baggage pick-up as well as the option to continue their journey to their final destination within the city on arrival with the freedom to travel without baggage. The Covid-19 pandemic has created a paradigm shift in the travel and service industries with a significant impact on safety, social distancing, and other operational policies for airlines and airports.
While touchless and contactless check-in and boarding have ensured that guests feel safe while opting for air travel, AirAsia India’s FlyPorter service now introduces a more safe, stringent, and hassle-free way to transport your baggage as well. An industry first, the door to door baggage delivery service entails FlyPorter picking the baggage from the guests’ home and delivering it at their doorstep.”
