Tips for Indians booking air tickets

  • Keep flight connections to a minimum: If there are 3-4 flight connections involved, it can be stressful for parents. The connection time should be less than 3 hours because waiting for longer hours in the airport can strain elders in the absence of airline accommodation.
  • Try to use a single airline: In a bigger airport, different airlines can operate from different terminals. Reaching terminals of different airlines inolves longer distances and parents may have to use trains, buses, walking, escalators, elevators... within the airport
  • Customs and Immigration: While booking the air ticket make sure that the immigration and customs formalities happen in the final destination. Children can assist parents at the airport in case of problems in immigration or customs.
  • Where to book air tickets: Use experienced travel agents in India who book air tickets to America who are familiar with the needs of seniors.
