THE Son Sant Joan Airport in Palma will place surveillance cameras to combat unlicensed taxicab operations.

The service, which is expected to become operational in March or April, will register the licence plates of all the vehicles which go in and out of the airport, with the goal of finding out how many times per day they access the facilities and prevent the illegal transport of passengers.

Announced by the Agriculture, Environment and Territory councillor, Biel Company, the initiative has been conceived to analyse and prevent this practice, which concerns both administration and licensed drivers, and has proved to be very difficult to regulate, since illegal drivers can only be accused if caught accepting money from passengers.
