Airlines

How the Travel Program Works:
The airline discount programs are the main focus of the MSI travel program. In order to access the airline discounts, you must book your travel through an MSI preferred travel agency. You may select more than one agency, and all airline tickets booked through the agency will receive any applicable discount as per the airline contract.

MASCO Airline Discount Program:
MSI contracts with eight travel agencies that offer a wide range of services. To book discounted fares you must work directly with one of the contracted travel agencies. Check with your institution’s travel department to access the travel program.

Discounts range from 2-60% depending on airline class of service and fare class.
