No pick-up point for app-based cabs at airport

Chennai: Air travellers who want to hire an app-based taxi to the city are in a fix as the Airports Authority of India (AAI) is yet to formulate a policy to manage these cab operators. Many passengers prefer these cabs to the highly-priced prepaid ones, but authorities are yet to allot a parking space or pick-up points.
Passengers often struggle to locate the cabs that wait outside the airport on GST Road and drive in soon after a booking is made. With no space allocated for these cabs, the drivers look for their customers as they drive in. If the drivers are not able to locate them, they have to leave the premises immediately to avoid paying the parking fee for overstaying beyond the stipulated 10 min utes. And passengers have to walk with the luggage to track the cab and board them.
