DriveNow has launch a partnership with London City Airport, allowing passengers to collect or return a car sharing vehicle at the airport.
DriveNow is an on-demand ‘free-floating’ car sharing service, with a fleet of BMW 1 series, MINI Countryman and 50 BMW i3s – making it the largest electric car fleet in London.
The innovative partnership opens the possibility of driving to airports on one-way journeys, and also introduces the concept of fully integrated travel.
Travellers can now drive to London City Airport, catch their flight, and jump in another DriveNow car upon landing in one of 9 other airports across Europe: Stockholm, Copenhagen, Vienna, Dusseldorf, Cologne, Hamburg, Munich and Berlin.
Driving costs 39p per minute and fuel costs, parking, insurance and car tax are all included. DriveNow customers can either pick up or drop off a car anywhere within the catchment area of North and East London.
Joseph Seal-Driver, managing director of DriveNow UK, said: “We are committed to giving Londoners a fully flexible solution to traditional transport methods - our partnership with London City Airport gives our customers a flexible way to travel in and out of the capital. London City is the first airport to adopt DriveNow’s car-sharing service and we’re excited to be further connecting London with our other European cities.”
Tom Murphy, commercial manager at London City Airport said: “We pride ourselves on offering the best possible experience for customers. This new partnership with DriveNow offers more choice for passengers to make their journey as convenient as possible.”
