They say you don’t get a second chance to create a first impression. Surely that means our current international airport needs to go under a major renovation spree! One wonders what impression, if any, is left on the tourists that touch down in TIA. Renovating the only international airport has been a task which the government has worked on for the past few years and one of the key development that will take place will be the addition of 300 new taxis for the airport. That’s surely good news! A private firm will be replacing 170 taxis with 300 new taxis. Incoming tourists will be happy to hear that English language and a uniform will also be made compulsory for taxi drivers. According to the memorandum, the selected private company must bring 150 taxis in operation within three months followed by a six months period for the total of 300.
I heard the toilets in the international terminal is in very very poor condition (as reported recently by a friend), maybe that should be next on the list. I look forward to sharing an update on this post, three months later, hopefully with photos of the new taxis in TIA.
