Hyderabad airport cab drivers sensitised on Covid norms


Hyderabad: The GMR Hyderabad International Airport Limited (GHIAL), which operates the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA), has sensitised cab operators on Covid-19 safety norms and provided them with instructions to follow while ferrying passengers.

The safety measures at the airport begin from its parking zone, where social distancing markings, digital payment options and other contact-less measures have been provided. The airport has also come up with a mechanism to provide a sanitised taxi experience for every passenger using the RGIA-authorised taxi service.

Some of the airport-authorised taxis are also providing a plastic partition between the driver and passengers. This minimises any contact with passengers and prevents any contagion, according to a press release.

All the taxi drivers have been instructed to mandatorily wear face masks while driving and also to keep sanitisers in their taxis.  Airport-authorised taxi services — Meru, Skycab, Ola, Uber, One Car and Srinivasa Tours and Travels among others — resumed their operations from May 25. The cab operators were also asked to disinfect the interior and exteriors of the taxis.
