Airline launches baggage delivery service

United Airlines has inaugurated a baggage delivery service option that will allow passengers to skip baggage claim and have checked bags delivered to their final destination, such as a Waikiki hotel.

United is initially rolling out its BagsVIP service in Honolulu, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles and Orlando.

Fees for the service start at $29.95 for one bag, $39.95 for two bags, and $49.95 for three to eight bags, for deliveries within a 40-mile radius. Beyond that, additional fees apply for deliveries up to 100 miles from a customer’s arrival airport.

The service can be ordered from BagsVIP online or via phone at 1-877-847-0045.

BagsVIP announced a similar arrangement with American Airlines last year and offers service from neighbor island airports as well as from Honolulu International, according to its website.
