American Airlines has announced it will become the first United States airline to team up with BAGS VIP Luggage Delivery to launch a new service to help customers make their journey more relaxing and convenient.
Beginning today, customers who purchase the new Baggage Delivery Service can bypass the airport baggage claim upon arrival and have their bags delivered to their office, home, hotel or wherever else their final destination may be.
Baggage Delivery Service, enabled by BAGS VIP Luggage Delivery, is available seven days a week, including holidays, at more than 200 US domestic airports and select international Pre-Clearance cities.
Booking the new Baggage Delivery Service is as easy as 1-2-3:
- Upon booking their flight on AA.com - or up to two hours prior to departure by clicking on “View Itinerary” - customers have the option to buy this service. The cost is $29.95 for one bag, $39.95 for two bags and $49.95 for three to ten bags.
- When customers arrive at the airport, a special indicator will be printed on their bag tags to help BAGS VIP Luggage Delivery representatives correctly identify luggage and quickly get it to its final delivery destination.
- Customers can then bypass the baggage claim at their destination airport and head to their hotel, home or wherever their travel may take them. For delivery locations within 40 miles from the airport, their bags will arrive within one to four hours at the destination of choice.
“Teaming up with BAGS VIP Luggage Delivery shows our commitment to provide more options to help our customers have a hassle-free trip,” said David Vance, managing director – customer operations planning, American Airlines..
“We think this service will be especially valuable to families travelling with children as well as our business travellers who need to go straight to a meeting or into the office.”
