New Delhi: There is good news about cheap air travel. The country’s major airlines are giving up to 50 percent discount on air tickets. You too can take advantage of this opportunity. For this, we are going to give you information about what you have to do and what is the offer. Air India has introduced a special offer offer in which the state-run airline carrier is offering senior citizens up to 50 per cent discount on tickets. In this offer senior citizens get 50% off on basic fare on all Air India flights. This exemption is applicable on most of the routes on which Air India flies its commercial aircraft. So you can take advantage of this opportunity.
Senior citizens planning to book a flight ticket need to buy it at least three days in advance to avail the discount offer offered by Air India. The discount scheme is valid for all Indians who are 60 years of age or above. Also, the senior citizen discount is applicable only on economy class tickets. So, if you are a senior citizen or if you are planning to take your parents or grandparents on a vacation, this could be the right time.
However, there are a few important things you should keep in mind before booking discounted tickets for senior citizens. For example, you need to ensure that the senior citizen passenger traveling by Air India must have a valid photo identity card with the date of birth clearly printed on it. ID proof is mandatory for booking all such flights. If the passenger fails to produce a valid ID proof, the carrier shall charge the full fare for such plane tickets.
