What is the electronic ticket number?

The electronic ticket number (TKT or e-Ticket) is a 13-digit code in which the first three numbers identify the airline that issued the ticket. The Iberia identifier is 075.

Once you have booked a flight via Iberia.com, you will receive a confirmation email indicating the number of your ticket. This number will always begin with 075, and will be followed by your booking code[Open in a new window] or localizer.
If it appears as "pending" (Request mail in progress), it means that the ticket is still being issued and you will receive the confirmation email with all the details when this process has finished. If you still do not receive a confirmation email, we recommend that for your own peace of mind you call our Iberia offices to check that everything is in order.

Once you have obtained your boarding pass, you will see the ticket number and booking reference at the top right-hand corner, under the barcode.

All fees and taxes levied on air transport, which may represent a significant part of the final price, are included in the ticket price and will be itemised, once they have been added to the ticket price, in the fees and taxes field.

We recommend that you keep your confirmation email with all your travel details until the end of your trip.

How can I buy a ticket for a person that lives in another city?

In the majority of cases and unless indicated during the booking process, provided the card used for payment is a Visa, MasterCard or American Express card, and that it is issued in the country where the flight originates, you can buy a ticket for another person.

There are security exceptions which obliges the payer to present the card for verification at the airport of departure. In such a case you will be advised during the buying process, on the payment page whether the cardholder is required to present the card at the airport on the day of departure. For the same reason it is not possible to pay for tickets using virtual cards .

If this rule is not adhered to, the passenger will not be allowed to board, being able to do so only by buying new tickets at that time.

There is also the option of collecting the ticket at an Iberia office[Open in a new window] or making the booking at a Travel Agency. Bear in mind that the ticketing fee may vary when choosing to buy other than via our website.
