Nowadays, anyone can book real-time his/her airplane ticket in the comfort of their home including persons with disability PWD and senior citizens. They only need a good internet connection and a computer or a mobile phone. But the current on-line booking system limitation do not allow redemption of the mandated discount for PWD and senior citizens.
PWD AND SENIOR CITIZEN DISCOUNT
Remember that Filipino Citizens with disability and Senior Citizens are eligible to 20% discount on full normal fares and exempted from 12% VAT: Applicable to one-way (OW) / round trip (RT) on all DOMESTIC flights only.
The said discount is only applied on the sales in ticketing offices and travel agencies. Hence going out to buy ticket adds extra cost and consumes more effort and time. This leaves PWD and senior citizens with no choice but forced to buy online and forfeited the discount privileges.
THE GOOD NEWS
Today, July 13, 2017 the Civil Aeronautics Board or CAB will issue a directive and guidelines to the different airlines in the Philippines to implement this discount as it is provided by in our law.
