Searching for your booking:
Select one of the two options available.
Booking code. You should provide the booking code or localiser and the passenger’s last name as it appears on the booking. (What is the booking code and where can I find it?)
Iberia Plus card number. If you included your card number when you booked you can do the search using just your Iberia Plus card number and PIN code. (Forgotten your PIN number or don’t have one?).
You can select the flight(s) you wish to check-in for.
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. Check the conditions, depending on the cabin class you wish to fly in.
Check that all the information is correct before the boarding passes are issued.
Boarding pass issue:
You can print out the boarding pass to PDF, receive the mobile pass by email or receive a text message with a link to display or download your mobile pass. 1 copy of the boarding pass per flight or leg.
And, if you use an iPhone or iPod with version iOS6 or later, you can easily download your mobile boarding pass to your Passbook wallet.
If you are travelling with hand baggage only, check the boarding gate on the flight information screens and go directly to the gate after first passing through the security checks* where you must show your documentation.
* Having authorised the online check-in procedures, the security services at the airports may, under exceptional circumstances, restrict and/or limit access to the boarding areas. If this happens to you, please contact our airport personnel who will be happy to help you.
If you are travelling with baggage, you should deliver it to the baggage drop counters (only available at Madrid and Barcelona airports) or the check-in counters 45 minutes before your flight departs (in Madrid this is 55 minutes for people coming out of terminal T4S).
Then head to the security checks* and show your documentation.

You can check in from the mobile apps downloaded onto your phone.
You can have your boarding pass on your mobile phone and proceed directly to the aircraft without any other papers. The mobile boarding pass can be used at the check-in counter, the security checks and at boarding. Identification is more streamlined, with less paper used to print boarding passes.
At the airport
You can use your mobile boarding pass at the check-in counters if you have baggage, at the security checks where you can use the fast track service to skip queues and at the boarding gates to access the aircraft.
For efficient identification, you just have to swip your mobile terminal with the 2D image on the screen (preferably lit) closely by the mobile boarding pass reader and wait a few seconds for a positive identification (sound/light signal).
If it is cleared accidentally or the mobile boarding pass cannot be read correctly from your terminal, you can also take your conventional boarding pass to any self-service check-in kiosk or Iberia counter at the airport. The same thing applies if your mobile battery is not charged or you have forgotten your phone.
The mobile boarding card makes waiting times at airports more streamlined and considerably shorter, as the different identification filters are much quicker and more efficient. Please remember though that readers do not replace security personnel at airports or Iberia personnel who may ask you for documentation to identify you as well.
