London – Europe’s busiest airport, London Heathrow, is expected to undergo an expansion in order to attract more number of visitors. The plan is to construct the third runway which is required to attract traffic by competing with its rivals. Though there were attempts by many environmental groups, namely Friends of the Earth and London Mayor Sadiq Khan to oppose the construction of its third runway, following the approval of the plan by the UK government, the judges rejected the petitions of the environmental groups to block the expansion of the airport.
Hearing the allegations of the opponents regarding the violation of the U.K’s climate change policy and Paris climate accord, the judges said that the agreement does not conform to the UK law. The judges said that the approval of expansion is more concerned with the legal ground instead of the merits of the government policy.
Virgin Atlantic, the airlines which involves more percentage of takeoff and landing spots, supports the construction of the third runway at London Heathrow. It aims to become the UK’s second flag carrier with the expansion. The expansion of the airport has been delayed for many decades due to the concerns regarding extra aircraft noise, increased pollution, destruction of homes and adverse impact on roads. However, the officials said that the construction is going to begin by 2021 with the opening of a new landing strip in 2026. This would shift the annual capacity of travelers to 135 million. Also, it will boost London Airport Transfer’s service on a large scale. With this, services like airporttransfersonline.co.uk, which has been popular for transfer in London and other nearby areas, will be benefitted on a large scale.
The UK parliament gave approval to the construction of the runway as part of its national policy. Since many years, the airport operator has been struggling to build the new runway to increase the capacity of flights. Now, it will be possible for them to expand London Heathrow for getting more traffic.
Ethiopia’s App Based Taxi Service ZayRide Expands into West Africa
Ethiopia’s first app-based Taxi Service, ZayRide is increasing its reach beyond Addis Abada. The company has decided to expand into West Africa with the help of Liberian web solutions firm Hak Technologies. This is a major step by the taxi service unit to offer smart transportation option to people with the replacement of old cabs from the region.
Over the last few years, three taxi services namely RIDE, ZayRide and ETTA have come into existence in the African nation. These three transportation entities have played a crucial role in easing the life of native people by providing them with excellent transportation services. Launched in 2016, ZayRide will see a big move in the near future as its founder, Habtamy Tadesse has announced that around 200 cars will be introduced in this Ethiopian on-demand taxi service.
Ethiopia which enjoys over 100-million people has remained out of reach of the private sector operations because the government had instituted a centralized economic model in this region. Because of the restrictions on private sector entities, the landlocked region has failed to grow well. Habtamu launched the taxi service, ZayRide after he failed to hail a taxi on demand but he faced a lot of opposition from regulators as they were confused between registering it as a transport company or software company.
All over the globe, the taxi industry is evolving at a massive rate as people don’t want to ride in their own vehicle due to increasing congestion on the roads. Even for a long ride, people consult taxi services as they want to have a comfortable journey. People usually hail a taxi from the airport to travel for a long distance. This has contributed to the growth of the taxi industry on a large scale. Long Distance Taxi JFK Airport is one such service which has got benefitted due to the increasing demand for a taxi for long distance from airports.
