Have Heathrow Airport Ltd had enough of the licensed London Taxi trade ?
Are they gearing up to dispatch all Airport rides from Heathrow to Private Hire Drivers?
Will they need a licence to do this (not forgetting that the airport is on private land !
What (if anything is your representative org doing to stop this from happening ?
They are currently putting together ‘an operating scheme’ to centralise all PH bookings, operated by or with their involvement !
This would require PH operators to register within the airports booking system !
They will be incentivising the scheme to PH companies by offering a discount on any emissions charges to road users that may be in place in the near future.
Let’s reflect on the fact that:
Gatwick got rid of local Hackney’s and sold the work to Gatwick Cars.
Luton sacked the local Hackney carriages and sold the work to Addison Lee.
This was posted today by the UPHD:
They'll need a license for that??
@HeathrowAirport wants to become a minicab operator and dispatch jobs.
TAXI LEAKS EXTRA BIT :
Have a listen to this conversation in a Yellow Cab going from the airport into New York. It shows just how corrupt Uber can allegedly be.
