Iberia Rolls Out the Hola Madrid Stopover Program
Designed to encourage long-haul passengers to extend their Madrid stopovers by up to six nights, the deal is designed to offer advantageous conditions.
The local council and Spanish flag-carrier worked together on the scheme, which is aimed at travelers from Europe, the Americas and Asia.
It is intended to strengthen Iberia’s Madrid airport hub, while driving demand for long-haul flights with Iberia.
Some 48 hours before arriving in Madrid, Stopover Hola Madrid customers can obtain a free guidebook with information about local transportation, climate, sightseeing and dining.
Once in Madrid, they may wish to hire a Biduzzer, an expert personal guide who can provide insider information about places to go and things to do, from the best choices on a menu to the best seats in a theatre.
On reaching the arrivals area in Madrid, Stopover Hola Madrid can pick up free public transportation cards valid for two days on all municipal buses and the underground Metro.
Another option is to choose a transfer on Alsa or to hire a car from Avis. Stopover Hola Madrid also includes discounts at all Meliá hotels. Both companies offer discounts to Stopover Hola Madrid customers.
