Best Offering Discount Airlines for Seniors
There are many airlines that regularly offer seniors fares. They are not ongoing fares but tend to be limited offers and specials. These can be quite generous and tend to apply to First and Business Class travel. Your travel agent is the best contact for information on these fares. Airlines also regularly advertise these deals in the press. Online travel agencies do not generally sell these fares as it is very difficult to monitor i.e. proof of age upon booking, so seek your bricks and mortar agency for these fares. Here are a few airlines that we do know of that offer seniors fares from time to time or regular hot deals:
