Association "Business for Plovdiv" with a proposition for the management of Plovdiv Airport regarding the unlawful, high taxi prices for clients of the airport

The Management Board of Association “Business for Plovdiv” was informed by one of its members that prices for customers of Plovdiv Airport, especially foreign guests, using taxi services from the airport to the city, were illegally determined by Plovdiv taxi drivers.

To put an end to this unfair practice, the Association made these specific suggestions to the management of the airport:

  • Announcement of an auction, with the purpose of choosing a taxi carrier (following the example of Sofia Airport) which will be the only carrier that would serve the airport’s customers;

 

  • Formation of a contract with clear passenger tariffs;

 

  • The winning bidder will have an obligation to both organize and control taxi cabs in the area of the airport;

 

Association “Business for Plovdiv” believes that this will be the best solution for this ever-growing problem and it will contribute in raising the positive image of Plovdiv and the country.
