CoatChex has partnered with JetBlue to offer a new-age coat check option for customers traveling through the airline’s home Terminal – T5 at New York’s JFK Airport. CoatChex, the first coat check location at a New York-area airport, answers the age-old question – should I take my coat with me?
New York’s current winter temperatures call for travelers to bundle up in their winter coats before heading outside. However, the temperatures in their final travel destination may not be as frigid or require quite so many layers. To help solve the age-old dilemma of bringing a heavy coat to locations with warmer climates, CoatChex has recently partnered with JetBlue to lighten the load for travelers heading to warmer destinations this winter, by simply asking, “May we take your coat?”
CoatChex, a New York based technology start-up, is the first company to launch a post-security coat check service in U.S. airports. CoatChex features a seamless and secure application and has eliminated the need for a claim ticket by visually tagging owners to belongings. This means two less items for travelers to keep track of during their trip. The system’s state-of-the art product innovation even scans boarding passes to track any changes in travel schedules. This ensures the coat is ready for express pick-up upon the customer’s return to JFK. When the customer returns relaxed, stress-free and ready to face the cold, all they need to do is provide the last four digits of their phone number to the attendant. Their profile will appear on the screen to confirm the coat is being returned to its rightful owner.
“As a tech startup, with an innovative twist on traditional servicing, our ideal partner is one who can join us in thinking outside of the box. JetBlue’s indisputable customer first mentality makes them an evident fit for becoming an industry first mover. In such a competitive industry, where a little extra goes a long way, I believe creative and consumer friendly services, like CoatChex, will help differentiate JetBlue from the rest,” Adam Loos, VP of business development for CoatChex.
“We are continuously looking for ways to further enhance our customer’s travel experience. Customers traveling to warmer climates don’t have to drag their heavy winter coats along during their travels. They now have the option to check their coats at the airport, said Jamie Perry, director product development, JetBlue Airways. “CoatChex has partnered with JetBlue to offer a new-age coat check option for customers traveling through T5. This innovative technology provides peace-of -mind through mobile checking and smart tags which capture transactions very quickly, accurately and in real-time.”
CoatChex is now open for business in the orange kiosk in the main market-place of JetBlue’s award-winning T5. Coat checking is available for a special promotional pricing this holiday season for $2 per day or $10 per week. Visit www.CoatChex.com for additional details.
