Elche taxi drivers operating out of Alicante-Elche airport are still unhappy about the number of out of area cabs and pirate companies that are using the facility at El Altet. So much so that they were one of the ringleaders of a regional Valencian taxi company and drivers meeting in Benidorm this week, which decided that all cabbies will stage a one hour protest strike across the region on Wednesday July 1st

The drivers agreed that they were fed up with the operation of pirate companies across the Costa Blanca, as well the increased proliferation of Uber-style on-line car-sharing sites. Meanwhile at Alicante-Elche airport, the local drivers claim that pirate operators are continuing to flout the rules, though they did concede that revenues have gone up by around ten per cent over the last year.
