Aeroexpress offers free transport for WWII veterans

Russian rail carrier Aeroexpress announced that it will be providing free rides on all its routes to veterans of World War II in celebration of Victory Day.

From May 5-11, veterans and their travel companions may travel on lines departing from Moscow, Vladivostok and Kazan free of charge through Aeroexpress, which is owned in part by Uzbek businessman Iskander Makhmudov.

The company also encourages veterans to make use of Aeroexpress' "Personal Assistant" service, which is also offered free of charge. "Personal Assistant" provides elderly and disabled riders help with loading luggage and printing tickets at train terminals.
