Early seat booking policy

Now you can book your seat with Iberia.com from the time of purchase.

And, in addition, if your fare does not include the possibility to book a seat, you can purchase it before you fly at a better price than at the airport.

Early 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.

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

On our Iberia, Iberia Express and Iberia Regional Air Nostrum flights, you can book XL Economy seats for more space and comfort. These seats are nearly always located beside the aircraft emergency exits, so to be able to occupy them you must be capable of assisting the crew in emergency situations and must also meet certain requirements.

Special requirements for emergency seats

You can reserve an XL seat when you book your flight, for a fee. If you don’t know your ticket conditions, find out at Booking management.

Not all seats in the emergency exit rows are XL (they don’t all have extra space) and their prices vary. Please keep this in mind to choose the seat you really want.

Price guide

You can view the exact price when you book your flight, from Booking management or when you check in online at Online check-in.
