Iberia Airlines Pet Policy
Traveling with your furry companions on Iberia Airlines can be a seamless process if you're armed with the right information. Given that the number of pets allowed per flight depends on the type of aircraft, it's essential to get approval from the Booking Office. For any pet-related queries or to verify pet availability on your flight, you can contact the Booking Office at (+1) 800-772-4642.
Small dogs and cats weighing less than 17 lbs (8 kg), along with their carrier, are welcome in the Iberia cabin. The pets must not have a strong odor or cause discomfort to fellow passengers. The charges for this service depend on the destination, with fees for traveling to Spain being 35 EUR, to Europe, Africa, and the Middle East - 50 EUR, and for America and Asia - 150 EUR.
For larger animals and carriers exceeding 17 lbs (8 kg), the cargo hold is the designated area. In order to make these arrangements, you can reach out to Serviberia at (+1) 800-772-4642.

The carrier dimensions for pets in the cabin must not exceed 18" x 14" x 10" (45 cm x 35 cm x 25 cm), and it must be well-ventilated, sturdy, and feature a waterproof floor.
