Sakha Consulting Wings, an all-women cab service operating out of Delhi, Indore, Kolkata and Jaipur, has recently been launched from the Indira Gandhi International Airport.
The service, titled ‘Women with Wheels’, can be availed for any part of Delhi. It operates from a kiosk near Pillar Number 16 at the airport. “The cabs are run exclusively for women commuters and are driven by women drivers who are hired from an NGO named Azad Foundation,” said Arvind Vadera, the CEO of Sakha Consulting Wings. Interestingly, men are allowed in the cab only if they are accompanied by a woman or women.
The CEO of the company also said,
Normally, women who land at the airport in the late hours feel uncomfortable while hiring taxis. We decided to provide them with cabs driven by women to make them feel safe
