Airlines

Airline discounts for seniors are not as common as they used to be. The best and most effective way to take advantage of senior airfare discounts is to call the airline directly when booking. Your booking agent can help you find the best deal for you, plus easily book everything over the phone. Note: Most discounts are only available for specific routes and dates, and vary by airline.

Here are a few airlines that offer senior discounts:

  • American Airlines
  • British Airways
  • United Airlines
  • Delta Airlines

Another way to save on flights is to be flexible in your travel dates. Luckily, this is perfect for retired individuals who have a little more wiggle room in their schedule. Flying during the week can save you big bucks on flights!
