How to order a taxi of 1.39 lei / km at Otopeni airport

8 7.832

After the tragic event with Japanese Yurika Masuno, from the summer of 2012, tourism sites and blogs have started to sound an alarm about the problems at Henri Coanda - Otopeni Airport. Among them was the problem of taxis. You could not call a taxi from a well-known company and with an ok fare, and many passengers were practically attacked by all sorts of dubious characters and who promised taxi services at affordable prices (in fact the price was 3-4 or higher compared to that of an ordinary taxi).

After several pressures, the miracle happened, and the taxi activity, at the "Henri Coandă" Otopeni airport, was reorganized. From February 1, 2013, 2 “Taxi to order” help desks were placed in the Arrivals Terminal, telephones were installed for free calls to taxi companies and information panels with taxi companies and prices appeared.

From the report presented by the Bucharest National Airports Company, the need for such services is clearly observed. On 11.02.2013 there were 525 of custom taxi requests, most of them carried out through help desks. Since the commissioning of the new taxi system, the number of custom taxi requests has steadily increased, in the first 12 days registering over 4.200 of orders.

To be clear to everyone, we also explain the mechanism. The arrivals terminal has a ground floor and a first floor. The two help desks are located on the 1st floor. Find information about taxi companies and prices, but there are also people ready to help you with more information. The taxi can be ordered via the telephones provided free of charge or via your own telephone. Upon request, a call sign is provided. At the aforementioned offices, you must fill in a ticket with the taxi company and the car code to arrive. This information is entered into a system. Based on that ticket, exit the terminal on the 1st floor and wait for the corresponding machine. It should be mentioned that the custom-made taxis come ONLY on the 1st floor. On the ground floor you will find free taxis, most of them with 1 lei / km. You can also take it from the ground floor 780 and 783 express RATB buses.

As you can see, the system is a bit more complex, but closely monitored. I am glad that the press and travel blogs have managed to change something for the better at the "Henri Coandă" Otopeni airport.

    after all, what are the schedules of these buses at night? As I saw, the schedule is until 23 o'clock.
    They do NOT have connections with Buciresti north station… as usually poor service

      Unfortunately, RATB shortened the schedule of line 780 and has no schedule after 23:00 XNUMX
