customers arriving into London from Helsinki, they can also have
their baggage picked up from the airport and delivered directly to
their home or hotel. This will offer them greater freedom to
attend important meetings or to explore London at their own pace,
without having to worry about their baggage.

Airways and American Airlines at Heathrow, and with British
Airways at Gatwick.
