As an airline committed to innovation, we believe this trial with AirPortr will offer customers a smoother and easier journey, without having to personally take their baggage to the airport and spend time queuing at both check-in and security, said Sari Nevanlinna, Head of Ancillary Business at Finnair. Based on the upcoming feedback we receive on this initiative, well also look into expanding the service to other markets in the future.

For those Finnair 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.

Finnair will become the third oneworld carrier to make use of the service as AirPortr currently works with Finnairs alliance partners British Airways and American Airlines at Heathrow, and with British Airways at Gatwick.
