State Duma proposes to extend student travel benefits
State Duma deputy Natalya Kuvshinova suggested that the Russian government allow students and post-graduate students up to 30 years old to buy air tickets at reduced prices to the Far East, Kaliningrad and Simferopol. The parliamentarian sent a letter of invitation to Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.
Now only retirees, people with disabilities, large families and young people up to 23 years old can buy a ticket at a subsidized rate. As reported "News", Natalya Kuvshinova offers to extend the privilege to students and post-graduate students up to 30 years and to give them tickets within the framework of the current amount of subsidies. According to the deputy, this will allow the development of youth tourism, facilitate higher education, allow students and graduate students to participate in scientific and educational exchanges, seminars, conferences.
The initiative has already been praised positively by the All-Russian Passenger Association. They believe that this measure could lead to an increase in the number of flights of young Russians around the country. However, the airlines drew attention to the fact that this could lead to increased student competition before 30 years with other beneficiaries.
