My friends will pick me up at the airport.
Pois, dá a mesma ideia.
Entretanto se fosse o caso de um dignatario ser recebido por outro, ficava melhor to be met or to be welcomed.
President Lula was met at London airport by Mr. Tony Blair. (was he?).
Abaixo uma frase com picked up:
President Lula was picked up by Mr. Tony Blair, who was driving his own private moto-taxi. The international press, who photographed Lula on the back-seat holding on to Mr.Blair in a back-to-front typical Brazilian abraço somewhere near Buckingham Palace in the pouring rain, were told later by Mr.Blair this personalized picking up of his was a nice and lucrative sideline, which allowed him to make a few extra bobs*. He also emphasized it had brought the two dignataries a lot closer and had created rather warm feelings.
* bobs=slang for money
