Ben Gurion Taxi Drivers Considering Strike Over Mandatory 12% Fare Discount

1

Starting Monday, the Israel Airports Authority (IAA) is considering requiring taxi drivers who want to wait on the first floor of Ben Gurion Airport—immediately after passengers leave the baggage claim area—to offer a 12% discount in fare.

Drivers who are not inclined to offer such a discount will be required to wait on the second floor, which is considered less convenient for travelers, who can only access the area by stairs or the elevator.

Some taxi drivers, who claim that the price is too low after the fare was reduced by 7% last year, say they intend to strike due to what they call a “unilateral decision whose legality is in doubt.” Read more at YNet.
