MANILA - Senior citizens and persons with disabilities (PWD) will now get a 20 percent discount as well as exemption from the 12 percent value added tax (VAT) for domestic flights booked online, Philippine Airlines (PAL) said Tuesday. 

The flag carrier said senior citizens and PWDs can avail themselves of the discount and VAT exemption via its online booking portal 

Senior citizens will be required at the airport check-in counter to present an ID from the Office of Senior Citizens Affairs along with another government-issued ID indicating their date of birth. 

PWDs meanwhile will also be required to present a PWD ID along with a government-issued ID. 

PAL said the discount and exemption is not applicable to other taxes, fees and charges and services like extra baggage, and to tickets issued as a reward or prize.
