Zóna-Service, a consortium of companies that won a tender to provide taxi service at Budapest's Ferihegy International Airport in 2006, told MTI it would announce on October 12 steps it plans to take after airport operator Budapest Airport said it cancelled the contract.
Zóna-Service confirmed Budapest Airport had told it that it had unilaterally cancelled its contract. The taxi company said it is shaping its legal and business stand on the matter.
Zona-Service will continue to fulfill orders from riders at the same prices, providing a level of service in line with European standards, the company said.
Budapest Airport on Thursday said it would cancel its taxi contract and call a new tender for the service.
Budapest Airport said its most important considerations are passenger safety and comfort, thus it decided, after a review of the market, to invite several Budapest taxi companies to participate in a tender. Budapest Airport aims to select a new service provider in a fair and transparent procedure as soon as possible, it added.
Zóna-Service's contract was for four years with an option for a one-year extension. (MTI – Econews)
