BIAL Establishes Safety Measures For Airport Taxis

Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL), operator of Kempegowda International Airport, Bengaluru (KIAB or BLR Airport), has established extreme sanitization measures to ensure customers a healthy and safe taxi journey from the airport.

Taxis will be sanitized and drivers screened 

BIAL will ensure that the taxis are sanitized and the drivers are screened before every trip to eliminate all chances of infection. Masks are mandatory for both drivers as well as passengers, without which passengers will not be allowed to board the taxi. Drivers have been instructed to maintain a safe distance, and also use hand sanitizer and face masks to create a safe space. BIAL will continue to educate the driver community on social distancing and good hygiene practices. Drivers spitting in public places will be penalized.

Able-bodied passengers are advised to load their luggage into the car without driver assistance. For elderly citizens and passengers with reduced mobility, drivers will assist while following hygiene measures. Also, Taxi service staff at Airport (including KSTDC, Ola, Uber, and other car rental operators) will be screened. Drivers will be screened before arriving at the Airport pick-up zone to ensure passenger safety; they will be suspended if a fever is detected.

The parking facility for passengers with self-driven cars will be contactless from entry to exit. Upon arrival at the parking gate, the ticket machine will dispense a ticket, capturing the time, date. At the exit, the passenger will scan the ticket against a machine, and payment can be made using a digital platform. During card payment, the card will be sanitized before returning it to the customer.
