Moscow passes disabled air services bill

 

The Russian Duma has adopted a bill that gives people with disabilities unimpeded access to air services. Airlines are not allowed to refuse to board wheelchair-bound passengers due the lack of the proper equipment and tour operators and carriers are no longer allowed to request medical documents confirming their health status from people with disabilities while booking their flights.

Moreover, airlines will be required to provide wheelchairs and other services based on the federal air services rules, while the equipment purchase costs are to be met by the airline.
