For children with a child or infant ticket

Discount tickets for minors, i.e., children (aged 2 to 11) or infants (under 2) will have the same allowance as an adult and may also cover a foldable stroller or a car seat.

On flights to/from Bolivia, the baggage allowance for the infant ticket will be one item only.

Travelling with connecting flights and/or flights with another airline

Please remember that each airline establishes an allowance that passengers can carry on their flights at no extra charge and in accordance with the weight, dimension, contents and conditions of each company. You can find the details of the airline that operates your flight at bookings management. Check with the operator to confirm your baggage allowance and other restrictions.

The allowance that is best for the customer with an Iberia ticket directly to the final destination will be applied, even if the flight involves several connecting legs. If you are travelling with different tickets, the corresponding allowance for each one will apply. You only can check your baggage for connecting different flights, provided that the locator or booking reference is the same.

If you are travelling on an IB5XXX flight with an Iberia or Iberia Regional connecting flight, the Iberia baggage carriage conditions will apply throughout the whole journey to your destination, both in terms of baggage allowance and excess weight.

If you are travelling on an IB5XXX flight and/or in transit between IB5XXX flights, the free baggage allowance will be one piece of baggage weighing 23 kg. When the weight of the piece is more than 23 kg, every kilo over will be subject to a surcharge, up to a maximum of 32 kg. The surcharge per additional piece is  payable at the airport plus the  surcharge per kilo of the weight of that piece. If you are travelling to/from Algeria, the baggage allowance will be a maximum of 1 x 30 kg item per passenger (infant included).

If you are travelling to/from Algeria, the baggage allowance will be a maximum of 1 x 30 kg item per passenger (infant included).

The policy of the operator is that these surcharges for excess baggage kilos or pieces apply to each leg flown and not to trips (departure-arrival airport).

If you are travelling on a code-share flight, i.e., if your flight number is in the IB-4000 or IB-7000 series, you will have the baggage allowance that appears on your ticket for each flight. For excess weight, excess baggage, etc., the baggage regulations of the company that operates the flight will apply.

If your ticket includes an Iberia flight and a flight with another airline, the baggage allowance of the company that operates the most significant flight will apply. If Iberia is the first company, the allowance that appears on the ticket will apply. If you bought separate tickets with different airlines, the baggage allowance of the respective operator will apply to each ticket.

If you are flying with JetBlue (B6) from Santo Domingo to Puerto Rice (or vice versa), remember that this company does not allow you to carry anything in the hold other than:

  • Passengers flying in economy, with two pieces of 23 kg each.

  • Passengers flying in Business class, three pieces of 23 kg each.

  • In no case can you carry or buy extra baggage or excess weight.

Additional baggage allowances offered by each airline will only be valid for that airline's flights.

See how this applies on flights operated by

  • British Airways
  • American Airlines
  • Finnair
