August 23, 2017: Ola, India’s most popular mobile app for transportation, has entered into a strategic alliance with the Airport Authority of India (AAI) to extend its range of mobility offering to commuters, through designated Ola Zones and Kiosks, at Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport, Kolkata, Chennai International Airport, Pune International Airport, and Chaudhary Charan Singh International Airport, Lucknow.

The partnership will enable Ola driver partners to park their vehicles at a designated area, bringing down the Estimated Time of Arrival (ETAs) to as low as 2 minutes. ‘Ola Zones’ will also serve as designated pickup and dropoff points, delivering enhanced boarding experience to hundreds of thousands of travelers frequenting these four airports. Ola Kiosks, manned by Ola representatives at all times, will ensure uninterrupted access to mobility and a convenient booking experience for commuters even without a smartphone or Ola App. With over 45 lakh domestic and international travelers passing through every month, these 4 airport grids are amongst the country’s busiest airports.

Saurabh Mishra, Director - Alliances at Ola, said, “India’s aviation sector has demonstrated strong growth in the past few years, and the demand for air travel is still expanding. This growth has encouraged airport authorities to invest considerably in building stronger infrastructure and easier access to complimentary services. Mobility being one of the integral components of this experience, this partnership is sure to add convenience, accessibility and reliability to the lives of millions of passengers moving in and out of the city. This strategic alliance with Airport Authority of India, assures a hassle free mobility experience for millions of passengers in these four cities.” He added, “Ola's endeavour is to make travel more accessible and hassle free for its customers and our partnerships with key public transit points in the transportation space such as airports, railways, and metro authorities are a testament to that effect.”

The first ever ‘Ola Zone’ was set up in Kempegowda International Airport – Bangalore in May last year; that saw significant traction and uptake from consumers. Its phenomenal success led to the rapid expansion to other major transit points including railways and metro authorities across the country. Ola Zones and Ola Kiosks have also been set up at Swami Vivekananda Airport – Raipur in February this year.
