November 1, to the workers, might be a holiday, but to the students, it is much more than a holiday because the Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) said students could avail themselves of a 20-percent discount for domestic airline flights.
The CAB released the guidelines for Republic Act No. 11314, also known as the Student Fare Discount Act and such was signed by President Rodriga Duterte on April 17.
According to the CAB, the rules cover local carriers and students enrolled in any elementary, secondary, technical or vocation and higher educational institution, but itcdoes not cover those enrolled in postgraduate studies, medicine,law and “informal short-term courses” such as dancing, swimming, music, driving lessons and seminar-type course.
The rules stated that the 20-percent discount would be calculated from the “regular base fare” of domestic flights.
In cases of promo fares offered by an airline, the student would have to choose between the promo rate and the regular fare less the discount.
To avail, the student must present the following:
- Duly issued school identification card
- Current, validated enrollment form
- Birth Certificate
- Baptismal Certificate
- Latest School Records (Form 137)
- Naturalization certificate
The law covers all public transportation utilities such as taxis, buses, jeepneys, vehicles for hire, tricycles, passenger trains and marine vessels.
