Iberia: Children Flying Alone

You must contact Iberia directly if your child will be traveling unaccompanied.

What is unaccompanied minor service?

Young children traveling without a parent or legal guardian are considered unaccompanied minors. Most airlines provide a service to assist these children from their point of departure to their final destination.

What age does my child have to be to qualify as an unaccompanied minor?

The service is mandatory for children ages 5-11 traveling without an adult who is at least 18 years old. Children ages 12-17 years are not required to travel as unaccompanied minors, but the service is optional for this age group as well.

Children under 5 years of age are not allowed to travel unless accompanied by an adult who is at least 18 years old.

What are the fees associated with this service?

Fees vary depending on route. Contact Iberia directly for more information.

Are there any flight restrictions?

Unaccompanied minors are not permitted on IB7000 flights, or when the flight includes sections which are flown by other companies. On IB5000 flights minors aged under 14 traveling alone will not be accepted and they must always be accompanied by an adult of at least 18 years of age.
