The MIT Travel Office recently entered into an agreement with US Airways for discounted air fares for MIT employees and students, effective immediately through 1999. These discounts are in addition to the previously announced agreement with American Airlines.
The new agreement provides a 6 percent discount on domestic and Canadian tickets, and on international flights, a 25 percent discount on J and Y fares, 20 percent discount on B fares and a 6 percent discount on other published international fares.
Rates have also been set for travel between certain US cities. These one-way rates, including tax, are: Boston and Washington National--$234.25 (originally $284.25); Manchester and Washington National--$234.25 (originally $283.00); Boston and LaGuardia--$93.00 (full coach $202.00); and Washington National and LaGuardia--$93.00 (full coach $202.00).
The above discounted fares are available only when using American Express Travel (x3-7961) or Omni Travel (x3-9405). For more information, please call Ellen Sico of the Travel Office at x3-3547.
