MakeMyTrip has partnered with Meru Cabs to provide ultra-sanitized cab services across all major airports in India. Through this partnership, the company aims to continuously provide a safe and contactless cab journey, with greater emphasis on the hygiene and safety of travelers.
Stringent hygiene measures have been implemented by both the brands at all touchpoints
These measures aim to prioritize safety while minimizing the exposure of the driver and the passenger throughout the trip. Some of the safety procedures include:
- Ozone sanitization that helps control the spread of virus and bacteria inside the cab.
- Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA) sanitization of the cab’s exteriors.
- Temperature check of the driver-partner at the designated sanitization hubs at the airports.
Additional measures include the Air-protect Barrier sheet between the rider and the driver-partner and availability of alcohol-based hand sanitizer in the cab among others.
Parikshit Choudhury, Chief Business Officer – Ground Transport of MakeMyTrip, talking about the safety initiatives, said, “Through this partnership with Meru, we are confident of addressing one of the most real concerns of travelers during this difficult time, that of their safety. The partnership will help us provide a seamless and safe experience and takes one big worry away for our users who are flying, by helping them pre-book their airport transfers. With its exemplary safety standards for both riders and drivers, this partnership helps us prioritize travelers’ health and safety at all times of their travel journey.”
Sandeep Dongre, COO at Meru Mobility Tech Pvt. Ltd. Commenting on the partnership, said, “Meru has always put its best foot forward when it comes to riding safety and reliability. During this challenging time, Meru has implemented 7-tier safety measures to provide safe ride experience to our passengers, driver-partners, and also our ground staff. With this partnership, Meru compliments MakeMyTrip by providing safe and sanitized ultra-hygienic cab services to all the passengers traveling to and fro the airport.
