Uber Collaborates with AAI to Enhance Airport Travel Experience

In an effort to enhance the airport pickup experience for passengers, Uber has announced a collaboration with the Airports Authority of India (AAI) at Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International (NSCBI) Airport in Kolkata, West Bengal.

Improving Pickup Zones

Under this partnership, specific pickup areas within the arrival terminal for both domestic and international flights will be established. This initiative aims to streamline the process and provide passengers with a seamless transition from the terminal to the designated Uber pickup zones. Uber will also provide on-site support and clear directional signage to ensure passengers can easily locate the designated pickup areas at the airport. This move is expected to significantly reduce the time and effort required to find an Uber after landing.

Extending Services at AAI Airports

The collaboration between Uber and AAI was initiated in April 2023 through the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). This agreement paved the way for Uber to extend its services at various AAI Airports across the country. Currently, Uber operations are already active in more than 10 AAI Airports, and the collaboration with NSCBI Airport in Kolkata is an important step towards enhancing the travel experience for Uber users across India.

Introducing Cashless Operations

In an effort to speed up pickups and eliminate hassles for Uber drivers, cashless operations have been introduced at NSCBI Airport in collaboration with Omega Enterprises. This means that parking and pickup charges for Uber drivers will be eliminated. The aim of this cashless system is to reduce estimated arrival times for Uber vehicles, ensuring smooth and efficient airport transfers for passengers. With reduced wait times, travelers can expect more convenient and efficient rides upon their arrival in Kolkata.

Elevating the Travel Experience

The Director of Supply Operations at Uber India and South Asia, Shiva Shailendran, expressed the company’s dedication to transforming the travel experience. Highlighting the importance of the partnership with AAI, Shailendran mentioned that this collaboration will help Uber deliver an elevated experience for both drivers and riders. By providing reliable and hassle-free transportation options, Uber aims to offer passengers a seamless and convenient travel experience when they arrive at NSCBI Airport.

With the assistance of AAI, the company is committed to delivering a magical experience for every Uber user. In conclusion, the collaboration between Uber and the Airports Authority of India at NSCBI Airport brings hope for a more efficient and convenient airport pickup experience. With designated pickup zones, on-site support, and cashless operations, Uber aims to minimize waiting times and provide an elevated travel experience for passengers in Kolkata. This partnership sets the stage for further improvements in airport transportation across AAI Airports, ensuring smooth and seamless rides for all Uber users.
