Corporate Cabs -- $45
Queenstown taxi companies have forked out
big money to secure highly sought-after
spots on Queenstown Airport's main rank
for the next three years, with all successful
tenders going for more than $30,000.
The airport invited Queenstown Taxis,
Corporate Cabs, and Green Cabs the
opportunity to tender for five spaces on its
main rank for three years from this
Long-running firm Queenstown Taxis
nabbed the lions' share, securing four of the
five spaces for the second consecutive
tenure, with newcomer Green Cabs winning
the final spot.
Green Cabs' southern area manager Diane
Bramao would not disclose exactly how
much they paid to secure the space.
''It was more than $30,000. We just had to

tender on what we thought was fair,'' she

While he would not disclose the amount
offered, Mr Samson said he understood
companies had paid significantly more than
$30,000 for the rank spaces.
Airport spokeswoman Nina Crawford said
Corporate Cabs had since been offered the
opportunity to occupy another space
opposite the main rank for a trial period.
''The outcome is that all three Queenstown
taxi companies and supershuttles will be
able to operate from the airport from
December 1,'' she said.
