Shortly after our company was founded by Herbert Gangl, the regional newspaper “Bezirks Blatt” presented our first fleet of vehicles on the front page in 1992. This was the beginning of a success story that continues to this day.
With our fleet consisting of three Toyotas and a Renault Espace, we were already able to inspire our passengers at that time. In the first months, our core business consisted of classic taxi rides, but soon we developed into a reliable airport transfer company.
Online marketing did not yet exist.
At the beginning of the 90s, the possibility of making our company internationally known through modern online marketing was still some 15 years in the future.
The newspaper was our advertising medium
But even then we were aware that success does not come by itself. In order to secure increasing sales for our young family business, we exhausted the advertising possibilities of the time by regularly placing newspaper advertisements and distributing flyers to all households in the area.
With our slogan “We pick you up everywhere and take you everywhere!” we were able to attract customers for airport transfers from Innsbruck to Munich just one year after our successful start. In 1993, there were hardly any direct flights from Innsbruck Airport to popular holiday destinations or to Europe’s capital cities.
Especially during the summer months, our fleet was at full capacity with airport transfers to Munich.
The road to a modern Tyrolean family business
1994 Gangl Taxi becomes a school bus
In autumn of that year we took on the responsible task of operating as a school bus for the communities of St. Sigmund, Gries i.S. and Sellrain for the first time.
With two minivans we took the children from the widely scattered community hamlets to kindergarten and school.
Over the years, we were also able to gain the trust of the communities of Oberperfuß, Ranggen and Kematen and act as a school bus for these villages as well. And finally we were also able to take care of those children who attend the special education centre in Zirl.
Since then we have been carrying out this beautiful task year after year without interruption.
2008 Innsbruck Airport Taxi the company goes online
With our first website we succeeded in making it easier for guests from abroad to reach us and book their transfers online. Since then we have seen an annual increase in the number of airport transfers.
By continuously updating our website with a focus on Innsbruck Airport, we have been able to steadily increase the reach of our website ever since.
You are in good hands
Tyrol is mountains, valleys, tradition … Tyrol is so many things, but for us it is something very special: namely our home!
The bond with our small country in the heart of the Alps benefits our passengers. We know our way around and have always been familiar with the pitfalls and dangers of high alpine mountain roads. We know our mountains and approach them with respectful caution.
We are proud to be a true Tyrolean business.
Your Innsbruck Airport Taxi
To make you feel comfortable as our passenger, we tailor our services to your individual needs and wishes. Our drivers speak impeccable German and English. We can be reached by telephone and e-mail at any time and can react quickly and easily to any changes to your booking.
Airport Innsbruck Taxi – Gangl Transfers is now a forward-looking company with an exclusive fleet of state-of-the-art vehicles.
Our service is no different from that of our competitors: we drive customers from Innsbruck Airport to the ski resorts of Tyrol and South Tyrol and back again.
The difference is that we are a taxi with Tyrolean hospitality and this hospitality is passionately lived by our team.
How can a small taxi in Tyrol hold its own against a superior force of large Eastern European corporations? We investigated these questions and the answer was obvious.
Humanity – the key to success in the digital world.
We could add dozens more to the above points, but we believe the core message crystallises:
digital is essential – humanity is vital.
