Do you meet passengers in the airport?

Yes, we provide a service called baggage meets. Since September 11th, airport regulations restrict our greeters from going to the gates, so our greeters meet passengers in the baggage claim area.

Baggage Claim Meet option is NOT available if you make your reservation on the web.

What happens if my flight is delayed?

At A-1 Airport Limousine Service, we have the technology to monitor all flights arriving at O’Hare and Midway airports, providing we have your correct flight information.
