Early seat booking policy


Now you can choose and reserve your seat with Iberia.com from the time of purchase. If your fare does not include the possibility of choosing and reserving a seat, you can do it before you fly at a better price than at the airport.


Illustration of seat booking

For your greater in-flight comfort and to sit together with your family and travel companions, we offer the possibility of choosing your seat earlier, 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

Business

When you travel in Iberia Business Plus, Business Club or Business Class you can choose your seat early, free of charge, from the time you place the booking and without having to have your ticket issued.

Economy XL seats

You can reserve Economy XL seats on our Iberia, Iberia Express and Iberia Regional Air Nostrum flights, which give you more space for enhanced comfort. These seats are located at the aircraft emergency exits, so in order to be able to occupy them you must be capable of working with the crew in emergency situations and meet a number of particular requirements.

Special requirements for emergency seats

To secure an XL seat, we offer the possibility of reserving it at the time you book your ticket, paying a charge. If you don’t know your ticket conditions, find out at Booking Management

However, not all of the seats in the emergency rows are XL, i.e., they don’t all have extra space, and the booking price varies between them. Please remember this difference so you can choose the seat you really want.
