Iberia Welcomes Stopovers “A La Carte” in Madrid

Iberia Welcomes Stopovers “A La Carte” in Madrid
Joe Cortez

Flyers traveling through Spain to their next destination can now stopover for up to six days with the help of Iberia. The airline is beginning a new program, Stopover Hola Madrid, offering free ground transportation passes and discounts on local attractions to those wishing to explore the Spanish capital before flying on to their final destination.

International Airlines Group carrier Iberia wants flyers to take a stop in Madrid, before connecting to their final destination among the carrier’s 108 destinations worldwide. The airline announced the launch of the “Stopover Hola Madrid,” offering perks and discounts to travelers who choose to stopover in Madrid for up to six days.

Under the program, flyers can choose when they would like to stopover: on the outbound leg, or on the return journey home. Iberia will provide plenty of support for flyers exploring Madrid, from hotel discounts, ground transportation to the hotel and back, restaurant reservations and museum tickets.

Getting around Madrid won’t be a problem: Flyers who sign up for the program will be given a free public transport card, valid for two days. If they would rather see Madrid by car, Iberia also offers a discount on rental cars from Avis.

Discounts aren’t limited to museums and transportation. Flyers who stay with the program can also get free beers at La Cervecista de Mahou-San Miguel, special service at the department store El Corte Inglés and tours from Viator. Options include sightseeing around Madrid, dining tours, or a flamenco tour.

Interested flyers can see all the options available to them by visiting the Stopover Hola Madrid page on the Iberia website.

The program is similar to one offered by Icelandair in cooperation with the Icelandic government. In their stopover program, flyers can stay up to seven days when connecting through Reykjavik and enjoy tours or other experiences either going to their destination or returning home.
