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.

Remember you can also take an extra personal item 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.

What else can I take on board besides the permitted baggage items?

  • A handbag or small briefcase.
  • A laptop computer or camera.
  • A baby bag with food, drink and materials for the flight.

Electronic items

You can keep your PC, PDA, portable music player and mobile phone turned on throughout the flight (airplane mode).
