Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Monday, 14 January 2013

United Airlines has launched a new baggage delivery option, enabling customers to have their checked bags delivered directly to their final destinations within 100 miles of their arrival airports and skip baggage claim upon arrival.

Baggage delivery by BagsVIP will initially be available to customers departing from any domestic airport and arriving in Boston, Chicago, Honolulu, Houston, Los Angeles and Orlando.

The airline plans to expand the service to more than 190 domestic airports in the coming months.

Uniteds new baggage delivery service offers an alternative for travelers who prefer the convenience of having their checked bags delivered directly to their homes, offices or hotels, said Tom OToole, Uniteds senior vice president of marketing and loyalty. Our customers have told us this type of option adds value to their travel experience.

Standard rates for bag delivery within a 40-mile radius are as follows:

1 bag $29.95
2 bags $39.95
3-8 bags $49.95

Delivery is available up to a 100-mile radius for an additional charge that varies by distance. Delivery pricing is in addition to any standard checked-bag charges that might otherwise apply.
