All the licensed taxi operators will be free to pick up passengers from the Chisinau Airport, announced Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Spînu. Taxi cabs will have a designated parking lot where they will stand in line and wait to pick up passengers.
Signage will be posted at the exit from the arrivals’ terminal to guide passengers to the taxi cabs. The principle of operation will be first come-first served, says the deputy prime minister. According to Andrei Spînu, this way the congestion outside the Airport will be avoided, and taxi drivers will no longer have to tout at the exit to find passengers.
The Chisinau International Airport has issued a regulation that details the procedure. This week a meeting will be held with representatives of the taxi companies where the new regulation will be presented.
Until now, only one taxi company was allowed to park in front of the Airport. The contract with this company was not extended.
