Uber Can Continue in London During Appeal
London taxi and car-for-hire regulator Transport for London informed Uber for London that its private-hire operator license will
not be renewed. The license expired Sept. 30. However, Uber can
appeal by Oct. 13, based
on the Private Hire Vehicles
(London) Act 1998, and can
continue to operate until the
end of the appeals process.
“TfL considers that Uber’s
approach and conduct demonstrate a lack of corporate
responsibility,” according to
a TfL statement that cited
“potential public safety and
security implications.” Those
include reporting serious
criminal offenses, how drivers’ medical certificates are
obtained, driver screening
and Uber’s use of Greyball
software, which may have
blocked regulators’ profiles.
Uber exec Fred Jones told
BBC that Uber will appeal,
and Leigh Day attorney Nigel Mackay told BBC the appeal could
go to the Supreme Court and the appeals process could be lengthy.
EasyJet has launched Worldwide
by EasyJet, which offers through
fares for EasyJet passengers arriving at London Gatwick and connecting there to long-haul flights
on Norwegian and on Canadian
carrier WestJet. No interline or
codeshare agreements are involved. Rather, a passenger uses
EasyJet’s platform to book with an
EasyJet partner, and the passenger designates the EasyJet flight
from which he or she is connecting. Then, EasyJet transfers the
bags to the passenger’s next flight.
Minimum connecting time is 2. 5
hours, and EasyJet will not hold
departures for passengers transferring from late-running inbound
flights. Instead, those passengers
will be put on the next available
departure. Worldwide by EasyJet
also can be used to book through
fares for passengers connecting
between two of EasyJet’s 200,000
annual Gatwick flights. Talks are
in progress to add Middle Eastern
and Asian carriers to the service.
