Year-long trial launched for airport journeys 

On-demand minibus services operated by Bus Vannin for airport journeys are unfair competition, according to an Island-based taxi operator.

A year-long trial for passengers in the north was launched by the Department of Infrastructure on Monday, 1 October.

It allows passengers to pre-book a place on the minibus, which will then pick them up at their home.

Mike Birchall says it creates an unlevel playing field for those operating in the private sector.
