I’m a sucker for airlines that accommodate and happily welcome families. I’m also a big fan of reward programs. Therefore, whenever an airline makes an effort to combine the two they will win my heart forever. And that’s exactly what Iberia Airlines has recently done. This summer Madrid-based Iberia Airlines stepped up their rewards program by rolling out Iberia Plus Kids. What’s this mean for your tots? It means children ages two to twelve can start earning Avíos on flights with Iberia and family-friendly partners: Micropolix, Sheffield Centre, Golf Park, Teatro Haagen-Daza, Cinesa, The Lion King and others.
After enrolling your children the kids will receive their own Iberia-themed frequent flyer card identifying them as an Iberia Plus Kids member. When kids reach age 12 a new card will be issued but the minors will still have Iberia Plus Kids advantages.
Bonus: The good news I have today is…if you sign up before the end of this month, August 31, 2012 is the last day, your child’s card will be loaded with 2,500 Avíos. Talk about a good deal! And you don’t have to live in Spain to participate. Even if you don’t have immediate plans to fly on Iberia it’s still worth enrolling your children. I’m certainly going to.
That’s not all that’s family-friendly about Iberia Airlines. Kid-toting parents, with at least three people, can sign up for a Family Pass which is a new paid service for Madrid-departing passengers. This is how it works: Upon arrival to terminal T4 at Barajas Airport families will have an expedited check-in. If the passengers’ flight departs from the satellite building of T4 they can request to be accompanied on the train ride. This is ideal for parents or grandparents traveling alone with children. Thanks for the family-friendly efforts, Iberia!
