Taxi companies interested in supply and management of Edinburgh Airport’s rank are being invited to submit proposals.

The contracts to manage the taxi area have gone out to tender as the current deals with City Cabs and Edinburgh City Private Hire expire in April 2023.

The new five-year-agreement will seek to ensure a reliable supply of vehicles for passengers as the airport continues to recover from the Covid pandemic.

Gail Taylor, Director of Retail and Property said:

“Having a consistent and reliable supply of taxis and private hire cars is really important to those passengers who want to use that form of public transport, and providing choice is something we always strive to do at Edinburgh Airport.

“Like many other sectors, those in the taxi industry have come up against challenges in recruiting new drivers in Edinburgh and across other cities in the UK, and that has resulted in some longer than desired waits. Similar to other airports, we have supported our partners when this has been the case and we will continue to work together as we all continue our recovery from the pandemic.

“We are going through a really strong recovery at Edinburgh Airport and we hope the next five years will see us return to pre-pandemic levels and continue to sustainably add growth where and when we can. Direct connectivity from Scotland to the world will be crucial to the country’s overall recovery and we look forward to working with the successful bidder as we embark on an exciting five years.”
