Budapest Ariport Rt, the operator of Ferihegy International Airport, will announce an open tender for a single taxi company to provide services at the airport, the company announced on Thursday.
The move is aimed at improving the quality of service at the airport, so that it can receive visitors in a manner befitting Hungary, the statement said. Budapest Airport has been in talks with local taxi companies, the police, the border guard, the Budapest City Council and the Budapest Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BKIK) in order to resolve the currently unregulated state of affairs. “Most of the complaints we receive are about taxies. This is unacceptable, so we had to take this step,” CEO of Budapest Airport Chris Woodruff said.
Candidates will have to present all required licenses, own a fleet of a certain size and undergo a security check, the announcement said.
