3, Handling Flight Delays

We are monitoring flight times

Flight arrivals are often delayed by one or two hours. However, our customer support team monitors flight arrival times and is aware of any delays.
In such cases, we adjust the meeting time to match the actual arrival time, so you can rest assured.

4, Driver Waits Until You Come Out

Your driver will be there, guaranteed

Some taxi companies cancel bookings if time passes since the meeting time, causing drivers to leave without the customer. But our drivers stay until they meet the customer, as long as we can stay in touch through WhatsApp.
