In Russia may receive a law on the punishment the airlines for overbooking. The Deputy of the state Duma from «Fair Russia», first Deputy Chairman of state Duma Committee for energy, Igor Ananskikh, has prepared a draft document providing for a tenfold fine, which the company will have to pay passengers.

Commenting on the initiative about punishment for airlines, the head of the Duma Committee on state construction and legislation Pavel Krasheninnikov said that the amount of penalties for overbooking needs to be justified.

«If you formulate and introduce responsibility, perhaps, some. But the wording needs to be some other and the amount is not taken from the ceiling, and needs to be justified,» — said the MP RIA Novosti.

Thus Krasheninnikov said that he agrees with the idea of punishment for needless tickets sold.

Protection for passengers

In turn, the first Deputy Chairman of the Duma Committee on state construction and legislation Mikhail Emelyanov («Fair Russia») stated that it agreed with the proposed Ananskikh fines tenfold of the cost of the ticket.

«We have to stand on the side of passengers, not the side of the airlines. Airlines, unfortunately, the economy is not very efficient, they have a lot of unnecessary costs. And the desire to shift their costs on to the consumer may not be welcomed», — said Emelyanov, noting that the deputies will speak «on the consumer side».
