MOSCOW, November 23 (Itar-Tass) — The Aeroflot airline, the biggest airline company in Russia, has offered special social tariffs for passengers travelling to and from the European part of Russia to cities in the Russian Far East.
The special tariffs, which will be in effect since November 25, 2010 until March 31, 2012, are valid for economic class passengers under the age of 25 and older than 55.
No fees are charged for children under two years old who need no separate seat and are accompanied by grown-ups, but air tickets for children from 2 to 12 years old for whom seats are booked will be sold at special tariffs at 25 percent discount.
Tariff discounts for flights to and from the Russian Far East is a logical continuation of a state program to subsidize air transportation of Russian citizens from remote territories, Aeroflot said.
Previous discounts offered in the framework of the state program which were valid since April 1 until October 31, 2011 were available for Russian citizens aged under 23 and after 60. About 98,000 air passengers have used the Aeroflot discounts this year.
