FAQs regarding check-in online
What is on-line check-in?
The simplest, quickest way to obtain your flight boarding card from home.
From one day before and up to 2 hours before the scheduled departure of your flight, you can obtain your boarding card on-line and access the boarding gate at some airports without stopping at the check-in desks or the automatic check-in machines.
MyBagTag: Check your baggage from home
Now when you check-in online through www.iberia.com on a direct flight (no connections) with origin or destination in any city in Spain on flights operated by the Iberia Group (Iberia, Iberia Express and Air Nostrum), you can add the number of suitcases you wish to take and print out the check-in tags on a single sheet of paper. You then fold the paper (one per suitcase, without copies or duplicates) into four and pop it into the plastic case you can pick up at airports in the Spanish network to reuse on various trips. Once at the airport, you just have to drop your suitcase off at the fast drop-off counters (In the case of Madrid, counters 810-811 and 850-851 at T4).
When you have left your suitcase you can make your way directly to the boarding gates.
The service will shortly be implemented at all airports in the European and international network and, in a third phase, on connecting flights.
