Cab aggregator Ola is said to have partnered Kempegowda International Airport Bangalore (KIAB) to allow drivers on its platform to wait within the airport premises for picking up passengers.

Currently, drivers of taxi aggregators like, Ola and Uber are not allowed to wait within the premises at most of the airports.

According to sources, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between the two parties last month.

“Many times, cab drivers, including those from other radio taxi companies would create nuisance for drivers of taxi aggregators. As a result of this, Ola and Uber drivers are not available within the airport premises,” sources said.

This extends the waiting time for passengers booking cabs through apps, they added.

Spokesperson from Ola was not available for comment, while response from KIAB could not be elicited.
