Mombasa seeks airports tender annulment

17 February 2014, 11:50

Mombasa - Mombasa County Governor, Hassan Joho, has appealed to the Kenya Airports Authority to cancel a tender it had announced seeking to increase parking fees for taxis at the Mombasa International Airport.

The KAA advertised a tender for the provision of taxi provisions in Mombasa International Airport but more than 150 taxi operators blamed the authority for the short notice in which the tender was placed.

The airport manager however dismissed the claims saying that the authority had not received such complaints.

As such, Joho said that if the authority was out to introduce taxi operators other than those licensed by the county, the county will counteract.

“If they attempt to introduce a monopoly in the airport taxi operation, by licensing taxi operators other those that we have licensed, the county assembly exists and will impose a fine of up to KES 50,000,” said Joho.

The KAA has already increased parking fees in other airports in the country while the Nairobi County government has effected an increase of parking fee for cars to KES 300 from KES 140 per day within the central business district (CBD).

Joho told the taxi operators that the new plan by KAA would put them out of business as most of the taxi operators have been licensed by the County of Mombasa.
