MIT will benefit from an agreement with American Airlines that will result in discounted plane tickets for Institute-related business trips.
The agreement between American Airlines and the Medical Academic Scientific Community Organization, a consortium including major Boston hospitals, Harvard University and MIT, is effective immediately and runs until Sept. 30, 2000. It provides for a significant discount on domestic travel to and from all states except Alaska, as well as Puerto Rico, and a slightly smaller reduction in fares from the contiguous 48 states to Europe and the Pacific.
The discounted airfares are available only when using American Express Travel (x3-7961) or Omni Travel (x3-9405). Those with questions may call the agencies directly.
