Traveling Infants

Passengers travelling with children under the age of 24 months may use the option to carry the child on their lap rather than purchase a seat; however; only one child per adult is permitted. The airline will charge 10% of the ticket price to book this service. If you are travelling long haul with a child under the age of eight months, Iberia does have child comfort cots for them to rest in, but these need to be arranged for directly with Iberia and cannot be booked online. For one adult accompanied by two children under the age of 24 months, they will be required to purchase a car seat for the second child. The cost of a car seat is the same as the cost of travelling with a minor.

Minors

For a child to qualify as a minor on board an Iberia flight, he must be under the age of 12 years of age when flying. For minors travelling within domestic locations, they will be entitled to a 50% discount off of the cost of the total fare. International flights discounts vary depending on the location, season and whether the ticket is purchased at a promotional price. Minors between the ages of five years and 11 travelling alone will be required to make their booking via an Iberia desk or through a travel agent as this service is not available online.

Passengers need to make provision for a suitable storage device for the duration of the flight while on board.
