Opening Up the Airport



Opening Up the Airport

I see the Airport Permits are due for renewal soon and the DAA are proposing a €1 per job system to replace it.
This would possibly open up the Airport to the entire Dublin fleet (although they could allow only permit holders to avail of the PPJ system) which would obviously be a much fairer system than what is currently in place.
Taxis dropping off customers at the Airport would no longer have to leave emptyy but instead would have the option of joining the queue for customers there.
It would be beneficial for the industry as the representative bodies would no longer only represent the Taxis out in the Airport as they would effectively be joining in with the rest of the fleet with regard to working arrangements.
I’m sure the rep bodies will fight this all the way suggesting it is somehow better for us, but hopefully we all realise by now, that’s just BULL!
