Parliament approves new mobility allowance

Standard fares for residents finally approved

Aeroprto da Madeeira, which should benefit from the mobility allowance becoming more straightforwardThe proposal presented by PSD-Madeira deputies was approved by the Legislative Assembly in Lisbon today, with the votes of all parties except the PS and Liberal Initiative, who voted against it.

Madeirans will now, in theory, under the new mobility allowance pay only the price stipulated for round-trip air tickets – €86 for residents and €65 for students – without having to advance reimbursable amounts.

Thank goodness – you can envisage the reductions in the queues in the post offices on the island as a result of this. Whether it is actually implemented remains to be seen.

Replication is an even more sincere form of flattery
