Manchester Airport taxi blockade ends

14 Jul 2018



A blockade by taxi drivers at Manchester Airport has come to an end after a compromise was reached over issues surrounding the taxi location of the taxi rank.


Several hundred drivers took part in demonstrations, which included a go slow around the airport after the rank was moved at terminal 3.


Taxi drivers and their representatives were concerned that the relocation of the rank would have an adverse effect on disabled passengers wishing to take a taxi.


On july 12th, TaxiPoint reported that furious cabbies had stopped picking up from all terminals at the airport.


An agreement was reached between the airport and the cabbies today, with cabs being allowed to use four forecourt bays to pick up passengers, on the proviso that the number of bays can be reduced to two during busy periods.


Ali Qureshi, a representative from the Airport Taxi Association has claimed victory over airport bosses.
