France’s La Poste and Paris Aéroport have joined forces to open two “innovative” airport post offices, where customers will be offered new services in addition to traditional postage and parcel postage offers.
“La Poste is rethinking its range of services to meet the specific needs of travellers passing through airports,” according to a statement issued by La Poste this March.
“A big place is given to the self-service, with the 24/24 access to ATMs allowing millions of passengers, at departure or arrival, to perform several operations independently: postage, simple or recommended mail delivery, purchase of postage loans, colissimo packaging and stamps, reshipment, deposit of check and cash dispenser (in Paris-Orly).”
The initiative also offers other services accessible during opening hours. These include a private work or meeting space for rent on request; the possibility of printing a postcard at the “Peeksprint” terminal from a personal photo; the sale of post office souvenirs; and a space devoted to cell phone and wifi box rentals.
An interactive digital screen also provides access to Groupe La Poste offers, including:
- ordering personalized stamps;
- access to the “Pro Side” portal for daily management of a company’s activity; and
- access to the “Digiposte” electronic safe.
“The creation of these two spaces, which meets the needs of passengers and employees, is the result of a collaborative work between La Poste and Paris Aéroport,” reads the statement, which added Swiss Post is also “transforming its network and its physical presence to offer a range of services tailored to customers’ needs and needs.”
“The Paris-Orly and Paris-Charles de Gaulle post offices symbolize La Poste’s desire to be closer to its customers.”
