Dr. Le Dang Doanh was “priced” at Tan Son Nhat airport

On the morning of May 16, Dr. Le Dang Doanh said that he had a business trip to Ho Chi Minh City and landed at Tan Son Nhat airport. After landing, Mr. Doanh called a contract car in the area in the domestic terminal hall to take him to the hotel on Hoang Van Thu street, where the meeting took place with a distance of about 3km.

“When I got there, I looked at the fare and the driver asked to pay 198,000 VND, and in the receipt of the transportation contract, it was written 180,000 VND. I called the car in the area inside the station, so I thought it was managed about the fare, Because the above fee for a distance of 3km is too expensive, it is necessary to review the price of passenger transportation,” said Mr. Le Dang Doanh.

Talking to Nguoi Lao Dong Newspaper, Dr. Le Dang Doanh said that with this rate for the same distance, how much will the number of passengers passing through the airport order the services of this business every day? State management agencies need to clarify and list specific fares for each route, specific distance, can’t get how much to get!

Regarding the incident, the reporter contacted the leader of the Southern Airport Authority and the relevant passenger transport business. A leader of the Southern Airport Authority confirmed that he would ask to clarify the matter about freight rates.

According to research, the passenger transport unit in this case is Southern Air Transport Joint Stock Company (Satsco), headquartered in Tan Binh district, Ho Chi Minh City. Responding to Nguoi Lao Dong Newspaper before the above incident, the company representative said that the case of the passenger who booked this ride had been verified.

“At the time of booking, the staff will guide guests to the car, give priority to 7-seat cars for the elderly and also notify the fare for guests, in accordance with the transportation contract” – Satsco representative explained.

As for why the freight rate is so high, calculating more than 60,000 VND for a kilometer, the representative of this company explained that after the Covid-19 epidemic period, the operation of transport companies was very difficult, only starting to receive customers. recently. At the same time, the car pick up and drop off passengers at the airport had to turn around for a long time and at that time “it was raining, there was a traffic jam”, the fuel cost was also high… But the fare was informed to the passenger at the time of transportation. ?!)

In fact, in the past time, there has been a situation of passenger drivers at the airport calling them close, refusing to go near them, and the management agency has worked and corrected them many times. But the “hacking” with a high price like the one encountered by the passenger above needs to be clarified and rectified immediately.
