JetBlue has become the latest US airline to offer paid doorstep checked baggage delivery service to its customers with the announcement of a partnership with Bags Inc to offer Bags VIP baggage delivery service.
The service delivers a passenger’s checked luggage from the arrival airport to addresses within 40 miles in over 250 US destinations for prices ranging from $25-$40 for 1 to 10 bags. Delivery to destinations of 41 to 100 miles from the arrival airport is at additional cost.
Customers can book the service online up to one hour before departure from all JetBlue domestic US airports, as well as the airports served by the airline in Puerto Rico, the US Virgin Islands and flights from some pre-cleared international airports arriving into Orlando, Boston and New York’s JFK airport.
Upon arrival at the airports, the luggage is checked as usual and tagged with a special bag tag mentioning the customer’s Bags VIP order confirmation number. The luggage is then delivered to any address at the destination without any further action by the customer.
Luggage delivery through Bags VIP is also offered by United, American Airlines and US Airways.
