Uber’s relationship with New Zealand’s major airport appears to be deteriorating, making it harder for users to access the ride-sharing app.
Wellington Airport has blocked Uber from its wifi network while Christchurch Airport said the company had stopped communicating with it.
Disgraceful behaviour from Wellington Airport. If they had competition, they would be doing everything they can to provide a great experience to travellers. Instead they sabotage their own WIFI system to make it harder for travellers to use the transport mode they want.
While Uber drivers are still allowed to drop off passengers, Wellington Airport has threatened to trespass drivers who pick up passengers from the airport.
Passengers tend to walk to the nearby Z Energy station, however Wellington Airport has warned drivers the service station is also on land it owns.
So they will ban cars from even using the service station!
