Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC) this week welcomes Bethesda, MD-based SkySquad’s airport assistance service to provide a helping hand to families and other travelers in need.

SkySquad provides a new way to book airport assistance on its simple and easy to use online platform, with rates starting at just $49.

“We are thrilled to bring our service to Salt Lake City,” said SkySquad founder Julie Melnick. “This is an airport where we can offer a great deal of support for families, seniors, and all travelers who want less stress when they fly. We want travel to be fun, and SkySquad allows you to focus on the fun and leave the stress at home. All you need to do is get to the airport, we will take care of everything until you walk on the plane.”

SkySquad workers assist with baggage, walk customers to check in and ensure a seamless process even through Transportation Security Administration checkpoints where they use expertise and proactive hands-on help to get through quickly and hassle-free. From there, SkySquad helps travelers navigate to the gate, and can keep an eye on belongings while guests grab a snack, take a break or make phone calls.

All SkySquad staff are badged and background checked and can accompany passengers through security all the way to the gate.
