SkySquad is taking off at BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport to help travelers eliminate stress at the airport. SkySquad, based in Bethesda, is reinventing the airport experience by providing a helping hand from car door to plane door.  

SkySquad is a travel tech startup geared towards anyone who would benefit from a helping hand at the airport, from families of young children, to seniors, pet owners and more. Assistance with unloading luggage from the car, heavy lifting of luggage and help navigating the airport are among the company’s services.  

Once at the gate, SkySquad guides customers to the proper gate, and can sit with baggage while the customer uses the restroom or grabs a snack. SkySquad customers can also count on support for layovers and arrivals. Staff are badged and background checked to get through security.
