Renfe and Iberia expand Train & Fly programme

Spanish flag carrier Iberia and railway company Renfe have expanded their so-called Train & Fly programme to connect additional Renfe destinations to international Iberia flights.

From now on, Valencia, Alicante, León, Palencia, Pamplona, Salamanca, Albacete, Zamora and Ourense are incorporated into the programme, which already included Zaragoza, Seville, Malaga, Córdoba and Valladolid. With the Train & Fly programme travellers are able to purchase a single ticket for their train journey to Adolfo Suárez Madrid–Barajas Airport and the subsequent Iberia flight. One-way tickets as well as round trips are available.

Renfe and Iberia are forecasting that some 100.000 people with use Train & Fly tickets this year. The combined tickets are complementary to the existing Combinado Cercanías tickets, which enable people flying into Madrid–Barajas Airport already in possession of a Renfe ticket for the long-distance trains to use Madrid’s public transport free of charge.

The partners see additional benefits of the programme for international travellers and tourists, who get to see more of the country side and now have the opportunity to visit cities other than – say – Barcelona with greater ease.
