A skycap, also known as an airport porter, is a person that is hired as a porter to assist passengers, such as with luggage or curbside check-in. Skycaps are often hired by the airlines themselves, though sometimes airports may offer their services, as well.

Their counterpart at accommodations (hotels) is known as a hotel porter, bellhop, bellman, or bellboy.
