Iberia, the official carrier for the MT Summit, is offering discounts on round-trip flights with Iberia and its subsidiary Air Nostrum (excluding some connecting flights with the IB prefix). For Europe the discounts are 25% (business, tourist, Eurobudget) applying to flights between 15 and 24 September (inclusive). For domestic flights within Spain the discount is 30% for tourist class and 25% for business class. For intercontinental flights the discounts are 25% (first, business, tourist, and excursion classes, but there are restricted numbers of seats on some flights) and apply to flights between 10 and 29 September (inclusive).
