Iberdrola and IFEMA MADRID have decided to join in their strategy to promote the electrification of transport, by signing an agreement whereby energy company becomes a strategic partner of IFEMA MADRID to promote, through different actions, sustainable mobility.
The first of the initiatives has been the launch of the first public sustainable parking available at a fairground in Spain.
Iberia and IFEMA MADRID have joined forces to promote Madrid as one of the world’s leading trade fair and convention cities, for which the airline provides travel connections. It is Spain’s leading airline and the leader on routes between Europe and Latin America and flies directly to 142 destinations in Europe, America, Africa, the Middle East and Asia. Iberia’s hub and flight distribution centre are at the modern Terminal 4 of Madrid airport, from where it operates around 600 flights a day.
For those attending trade fairs and conventions, Iberia offers a 15% discount on the final price by buying tickets on Iberia.com on all flights whose final destination is Madrid. This offer is applicable exclusively on closed flights (Airlift flights not included) of Iberia, Iberia Express or Iberia Regional Air Nostrum, excluding lines with shared code (IB7000,4000 and 5000).
IFEMA MADRID and Uber, for effortless mobility.
The collaboration aims to expand the mobility alternatives available from IFEMA MADRID, and improve the experience of those attending the various events in the trade fair calendar, providing users with an easy and safe transport alternative with which to get home after a day at the fair.For this purpose, two pick-up points have been set up exclusively for Uber users, which will be located in the south zone, in the purple parking lot, to the right of the South gate of the fairgrounds. The northern area will also dispose of special parking spaces, near the exit of the fairgrounds. Additionally, visual signage elements have been installed inside the enclosure that will indicate Uber users the route to follow to reach the meeting point where their driver will pick them up.
We started in 2010 to solve a simple problem: how do you get access to a ride at the touch of a button? More than 42 billion trips later, Uber is available in more than 10,000 cities in 70 countries on six continents, where around 25 million Uber rides take place every day. In the second quarter of 2023, Uber had more than 137 million active users on the platform, and as of today, more than 6 million drivers and delivery drivers use the app worldwide.
