Senior Citizen Discount Offers
From my past experiences, I believe that air travel is more common, easier and affordable than ever before for senior citizen. There are a lot of airline companies available. Most of them are providing best services for all senior citizens. Here I would like to mention “The Indian Airlines” company. It provides a rebate on normal economy class fare airline tickets for all the senior citizens. Please know that company consider people who have attained the age of 65 as senior citizens. Other airline companies also offer similar offers and discounts to the senior citizens. These offers allow the elderly passengers to afford to travel the same way as they did while they were working.
Also, the tickets can be book through the particular airline website. Airline companies allow senior citizens on wheelchairs to board the plane first. Most of all, the company escort senior citizens who are visually impaired throughout their journey. They make sure the passenger don’t face any problem.
Hence, Air India also provides discounts to all senior citizens who are 65 years of age and over. They provide this offer on all types of journeys in economy class.
