AIRPORT cabbies’ demands for help fighting intrusion in the taxi sector have been heard by the Junta de Andalucia regional government, which has agreed to increase controls.
At a meeting with Malaga cabbie representatives in Sevilla, the Junta agreed to work with the cabbies to put systems into place which will also help taxis posted at Malaga-Costa del Sol airport and those from other areas with pre-booked fares work in harmony.
Yet Mobility Department director Rafael Chacon said that the Junta thinks AENA airport management, which owns the facilities, should join in financing required systems, which it has so far refused to do.
News was not so good for Malaga city cabbies, who are still demanding a solution to disagreements regarding return fares after pre-booked trips.
Malaga United Taxis Association president Jose Royon announced that the cabbies were considering more strikes if agreements were not reached.
