Albert Heijn Launches New Service For Post-Vacation Customers
Dutch supermarket chain Albert Heijn has announced a new service - Appie Fly - that will allow Transavia airlines passengers to order food that can be picked up at their airport of arrival in the Netherlands.
Presently, the service is only available in Rotterdam The Hague Airport.
Customers can place their orders online, while checking in for their flight to the Netherlands.
The service includes a ‘Welcome Home Box’, which can be picked up from the Appie Fly collection point in the arrival hall of the airport.
The box, which is sufficient for two people, offers two varieties of breakfast and is priced at €12.50 each.
A First Of Its Kind
This is the first time ever in the Netherlands that an airlines and a supermarket have come together for a service of this kind.
The service is aimed to ease the woes of travellers who return home after a vacation to an empty fridge and a closed supermarket.
Earlier this year, the service was tested on a small scale. It is now under a three-month trial period, and will be available on all Transavia flights flying to Rotterdam The Hague Airport.
