You keep your Iberia Plus level while on maternity leave for another year

If you are pregnant, have recently given birth or are in the process of adopting a child, you won't lose your Iberia Plus status even though you take fewer flights during the year.

  • To extend the validity of your level for an additional period, simply provide proof of maternity or paternity leave with a medical report or your maternity benefit certificate via our form. Once we have verified your document, we will destroy it for your safety and send you an email confirming the renewal of your level in the programme.

  • The application period is from the date of the medical report confirming your pregnancy until twelve (12) months after the birth of your child, the court ruling in cases of adoption or guardianship, or the date of the administrative or court decision in cases of fostering.

  • In the case of the other parent, to request the renewal of the Iberia Plus level, at least 8 weeks of the maternity/paternity leave must have been taken during the validity of the level. The level's validity will not be extended until the entire leave has been taken.

  • This benefit is not valid for renewing the Iberia Plus level for two consecutive periods, even if the leave was taken in two different Iberia Plus years.

  • This benefit does not apply to Iberia Plus levels obtained by criteria other than the programme's standard ones, depending on the flights or Elite Points accumulated.

Exemption from additional surcharges

You will be exempt from surcharges for credit card payment for all the tickets you purchase via Iberia.com and the Service Centre.

In addition, you also pay no handling or penalty fees for issues, changes and refunds on tickets charged to Avios at your Service Centre.

Give the gift of Oro level to whoever you want

  • Whenever you earn 10,000 Elite Points in an Iberia Plus year (from 1 April to 31 March of the following year), you can award the Iberia Plus Oro level to whomever you wish.

  • This Oro level will be valid from the moment that Oro status is activated, until the end of the following Iberia Plus year in which the benefit was obtained, at which time the beneficiary return to the programme level that corresponds to their Elite Points or accumulated flight. The maximum Iberia Plus Oro that can be assigned per member and Iberia Plus year is one.

For flights operated by Iberia for LEVEL, none of these benefits apply
