GetTaxi petitions court over Ben Gurion Airport ban


GetTaxi: The directive is arbitrary and directly harms the needs of consumers.

GetTaxi Ltd. today petitioned the High Court of Justice for an injunction ordering the Israel Airports Authority to allow cabs hired through its app to collect passengers at Ben Gurion Airport.

Two weeks ago, Ben Gurion Airport manager Shmuel Zakkai barred GetTaxi drivers from collecting passengers at the airport.

GetTaxi says, "The directive is arbitrary and directly harms the needs of consumers returning from overseas, continues the charging of high prices, restricts competition, harms the livelihoods of 3,500 taxi drives, and perpetuates the monopoly for taking passengers from the airport. "The directive is extremely unreasonable because of the lack of sufficient factual grounds for the decision, and because of the serious harm that it causes, which is unreasonable and disproportionate against GetTaxi's freedom of occupation and of the drivers who use the GetTaxi app," states the petition.
