Iberia is the largest airline in Spain and is based in Madrid. Iberia was founded in 1927 and concludes its merger with British Airways in late 2010. This is how one of the biggest airlines in the world is created. On offer are both national and international flights. Madrid-Barajas Airport serves all major Spanish airports, including Barcelona, Seville, Palma de Mallorca and Tenerife.
In addition, the airline is the leader in connections between Spain and Latin America. Important Latin American destinations are Santiago de Chile, Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro and Lima. In addition, the airline was the first European airline ever to offer flights to South America.
Other important destinations are in other European countries, including Rome, London, Frankfurt and Paris. The airline is a founding member of the oneworld airline and can therefore offer many flights through codeshare agreements. The fleet consists almost exclusively of airbuses. On board there is the Economy Class as well as the Business Class, which means Business Plus on long-haul flights. On short-haul flights, Economy Class passengers can buy snacks and drinks on board, and on longer flights, a meal plan is included. For entertainment, films are shown. In Business Class, every passenger has their own monitor. On this he can not only watch movies or play video games, but also send SMS and e-mails with the touchscreen. The frequent flyer program is called Iberia Plus. Collected miles can i.a. be exchanged for free flights, ticket upgrades, hotel accommodation or a rental car service. The lounges are called Sala VIP and are located at almost all Spanish airports. As flag bearer of the country, Iberia also often carries famous passengers such as the members of the Spanish royal family.
👜 Baggage regulations at Iberia
The Spanish airline regulates the baggage allowance analogously to the different booking classes. If you book the economy fare, you can take less free baggage than a passenger who chooses the more expensive Business Plus class. Depending on the type of route, the airline plans different booking classes. On long-haul flights to, for example, America, passengers in Economy Class are allowed to check in a standardized piece of luggage with a maximum weight of 23 kilograms. The maximum dimensions 158 cm (length + height + width) must not be exceeded. On long-haul routes, Iberia uses the booking class Economy Full Fare, whereby travelers are allowed to deposit up to two bags of 23 kilograms each. The Business Plus category allows up to three standard pieces of the same weight. On flights to Africa and the Middle East, the booking class Full Fare is not used. In this case, Business Class passengers may only check in a maximum of two pieces of luggage. For domestic and European flights, Iberia has also set up the Economy Basic class, with only hand luggage allowed to be loaded. Here, the cabin baggage regulations are to be observed, which state that the hand luggage may measure a maximum of 56 x 45 x 25 cm. The maximum weight of eight kilograms must not be exceeded. If you can store your luggage in this case, you can book a particularly economical model with Economy Basic, whereby the additional carrying of a garment bag is also permitted.
