All That’s True About The Viral Message On Air India Offering Discounts To Senior Citizens

Is Air India offering senior citizen fliers a concession of 50% on its domestic flight fares? Yes, according to information found on the airline’s website and confirmed by a spokesperson to BOOM. This concession is applicable on domestic flights, on the base fare, for citizens above the age of 60.

BOOM contacted the airline to verify a viral Whatsapp message that was circulating on the service.

The Modi-led government brought down the age of eligibility for this concession from 63 in 2011 to 60 in 2017. Even before 2011, similar provisions could be availed by women above the age of 63, and men above the age of 65.
