Hand baggage

These are pieces of baggage that you can carry with you in the aircraft cabin.

You can take one carry-on bag and one personal item.

If you travel without carry-on baggage, you can board the aircraft sooner (on Iberia-operated flights originating in Europe, except London).

Because of limited capacity in the aircraft cabin, exceptionally on busy flights some carry-on baggage may be removed and stored in the hold at no extra cost.

If your carry-on baggage is larger than standard it will be placed in the hold and you may have to pay an additional charge.

  • Handle, pocket compartments and wheels included in the dimensions.

  • Baggage that exceeds these measurements must be checked-in

  • These pieces should fit in the size-check device located at the airports and you must be able to lift them into the overhead locker by yourself.

Business Class / Club - Short / Medium HaulYou can take 1 piece onboard.

The Iberia Regional Air Nostrum aircrafts are smaller so there may be some limitations as to what you can take with you in the cabin. In this case, your luggage would be placed in the luggage hold and be available for collection upon arrival.

Sometimes, in high-occupancy flights, if there is not enough space in the cabin, carry-on baggage may travel in the hold at no extra cost to the passenger.

Más información

The US authorities report that, due to security restrictions, all passengers travelling from the USA can only carry one piece of carry-on baggage and 1 other personal item on their outbound flight.

Por motivos de seguridad, recomendamos a todos los clientes con un teléfono Samsung Galaxy Note 7 adquirido antes del 19 de septiembre:

Mantener los dispositivos apagados dentro del avión, que NO se recarguen a bordo y que NO se guarden en equipaje facturado al que no se tenga acceso.

Informar inmediatamente a la tripulación de cabina cuando un aparato electrónico resulte dañado, se sobrecaliente, desprenda humo, se pierda en cabina o caiga en la estructura de un asiento. En este último caso, es importante no accionar las partes móviles del asiento pare evitar aplastar el aparato”.
