Road Runners secures official taxi status at Gatwick

Horley-based taxi company Road Runners has been unveiled as the new official taxi provider at Gatwick Airport.

The company, which has agreed to take on all 252 drivers from the previous official taxi provider, will operate under the name Airport Cars – Gatwick.

Commenting on the contract award, Jeremy Bennett, External Business Development Manager at Gatwick Airport said: “ Each year, around 14% of our 32 million passengers use a taxi service to get to and from the airport. With our £1 billion investment programme, we are working hard to improve the overall airport experience for passengers, and that includes their travel options. That is why we have brought in a new on-airport taxi service provider and built into the contract a customer-service standard agreement that aligns with our own commitments to excellent customer-service.

“We’re delighted to have Airport Cars – Gatwick on board and welcome its commitment to delivering excellent customer service.”

Official Gatwick taxi services were previously provided by Checker Cars.
