  • The Senior Citizens retired and having age over 60 years are eligible for 50% discount on Air India flights in the domestic routes. The private airlines like Indigo, Jet Airways and Spicejet will provide only 8% discount only on base fare. The senior citizen needs to carry a Photo Id which is valid and date of birth need to be displayed at the check-in time at the airport.

  • Different airlines have different discount schemes for senior citizens. Some consider above 60 as the age for senior citizen while some consider it above 65. There are no uniform guidelines in this matter.

    Another thing is that they give this discount on economy fare and not on the dynamic lowest of the day so the actual advantage is not obtained.

    Anyway to get the discount one has to fill the form and give age proof and identification as already mentioned in above answers.

    Knowledge is power.
