MIAL sets new SOPs for cab drivers and taxis exiting Mumbai airport

Mumbai: Now that the lockdown measures are being relaxed and Mumbai is in the Mission Begin Again mode, the city airport will once again see prepaid taxis and local cabs ferrying passengers.
There is no restriction on their entry now but airport operator says there are strict regulations in place.

In order to further instil confidence in the air passengers, the Mumbai International Airport Limited (MIAL), handling the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (CSMIA), has under the new initiative decided to bring all the cab drivers who arrive at the airport under its radar.

"The airport has thus placed stringent measures to screen drivers and fumigate the prepaid taxis and local cabs entering the airport premise. The airport has deployed a team to monitor the screening and fumigation of drivers and their taxis arriving at the airport, further ensuring safety, and easing the minds of the passengers," MIAL said.

MIAL feels that owing to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis, the passengers exiting the airport are often a worried lot when it comes to taking a cab ride back home. Hence, the operator has designed a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for the drivers and the taxis at the airport.

"The airport has deployed Field Executives to supervise the screening as well as sanitization of the vehicle. Drivers will undergo thermal checks and will be provided with an informative pamphlet detailing guideline on social distancing and sanitization by the airport's executive," the MIAL said in a statement.
