Early seat booking policy

Book a seat

Illustration of seat booking

To improve your in-flight comfort and allow you to sit with your family and travel companions, we offer the possibility of choosing your seat earlier and at a much better price than at the airport. Check the conditions here, depending on the cabin class you wish to fly in.

You can request your seat from the time you buy your ticket, or later from Booking management, at Online check-in


Economy XL seats


Prices are valid from 5 October 2016 and subject to change.

You can also book and purchase seats from customer call centres[Open in a new Window], Iberia ticket sales offices[Open in a new Window] and travel agencies.

If you haven’t chosen a seat prior to check-in, you will be assigned one for free and at random when you get your boarding pass.

Seats can only be reserved for flights operated by Iberia, Iberia Express or Iberia Regional Air Nostrum. For flights operated by other carriers or flights with codes IB4XXX, IB5XXX or IB7XXX, please consult your operator. Iberia may change the allocation of booked seats for reasons of operation, safety or control.

You can consult the terms and conditions for reserving a paid seat here
