Autolux, a taxi company that operates at Brussels National, has launched a case against Uber with the Flemish-speaking Brussels Trade Tribunal, L’Echo reported on Wednesday. Uber announced it had stared operating at the national airport a month ago, a zone reserved for around 20 operators. Brussels taxis are not allowed to pick up passengers at Zaventem airport. Airport taxis are also not allowed to pick up passengers in Brussels or other towns, L’Echo says. Uber has been offering its services at the airport for a month, at lower prices.
“This company needs to understand we are not against competition. We just want everybody to respect the legislation in place”, says Rudy Claude, from Autolux. Autolux thinks Uber is not respecting the legislation, so it is unfair competition.
