Children travelling alone

Children between 5 and 11 travelling without an adult (code "UM"/unaccompanied minors)

A companion is defined as a person who, on the date of the journey, is aged 16 or over and is travelling with the minor. Bookings for unaccompanied minors may not be made online. To make a booking for a child travelling alone, please contact the Iberia Express Booking Centre.

The service cost per leg (each way of the trip) is as follows:

  • Domestic flights (excluding Canary Islands): €40
  • Canary Islands and Europe: €65

Service costs are subject to currency fluctuations at the time of the transaction.

Other charges, taxes or duties may be applied, in accordance with the legislation of each country.

In view of the special treatment required for these passengers, please take in account the following rules and recommendations:

Air safety regulations restrict the number of unaccompanied minors who may travel on a single aircraft. We therefore recommend booking well in advance.

Throughout the service process, from reception at check-in to pick-up at the destination airport, including accompaniment in transit in the case of transfers, our staff treat minors in a particularly sensitive and responsible manner.

When booking this service, please be ready to provide the following information:

  • Name, address and telephone of parent or guardian
  • Name, address and telephone of the person receiving your child at the destination
  • Passport and/or visa, if required for the destination

This information, along with other information for verifying the identity of the person entrusted with receiving your child at the destination, will help us communicate with you if necessary.

In addition, please bear in mind the following recommendations:

  • Book the flight and the service more than 24 hours before the start of the journey
  • Get to the airport in plenty of time to complete the required documents
  • Give your child an extra copy of the contact telephone numbers, both those at the origin and the destination
  • Do not leave the departure area until you have confirmation that the flight has taken off
