Flight discounts

We encourage attendees to book their flights early because the conference coincides with Carnival, which is celebrated widely in the Caribbean. We anticipate that flights will fill up early and prices will rise soon.

We have negotiated a special arrangment with the oneworld® alliance for discounted flights. oneworld is pleased to be the official airline alliance of Financial Cryptography and Data Security 2014.
