8 5.607

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 more pressures, the miracle happened, and the taxi business, at the "Henri Coandă" Otopeni airport, was reorganized. From 1 February 2013, 2 help tables "Taxi to order" were placed in the Arrivals Terminal, telephones for free calls to taxi companies were installed 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 make it clear to everyone, we also explain the mechanism. The arrivals terminal has the ground floor and the 1 floor. The two help desks are located on the 1 floor. Find information on taxi companies and prices, but there are people ready to help you with more information. The taxi can be ordered through the phones made available for free or through your own phone. Following the request, an indicative is communicated. At the aforementioned offices, you must complete a ticket with the taxi company and the sign of the car to arrive. This information is entered into a system. Based on the ticket, exit the terminal on the 1 floor and wait for the corresponding machine. Please note that custom taxis come ONLY to the 1 floor. On the ground floor you will find free taxis, most of them with 3.5 lei / km. From the ground floor you can also take 780 and 783 express RATB buses.
