Like airports in Metro cities, which have a dedicated Prepaid taxi service, the Belagavi Airport should also look into this option at the airport for the convenience of the travelers.
According to the latest report from AAI about 700 passengers travel daily from the airport.
All have to reply on Private cars/autos/Private taxis as there is no alternate way of reaching the airport.
Again it is the bargaining skills one has to have to get a good deal to reach the airport.
Many still don’t prefer to travel by air as they don’t have someone who can drop them at the airport or pick them up.
The NWKRTC has also not commenced its Fly bus service to the airport
Girish said traveling by Air is cheap and fast but getting to the airport is an issue as someone has to drop me and pick me up. If there is a reliable fixed pre-paid taxi counter as in metros I may travel more by air as it saves my time.
The Belagavi airport has seen some dramatic growth in the past few years under the leadership of Shri Rajesh Kumar Maurya and his team
A pre-paid taxi can add as a booster for air traffic as more and more flyers would fly.
