As you can expect, there’s a lot of health a safety item. Things of note are a requirement to declare you have no COVID symptoms at check-in, not been in contact with a carrier.
Passengers will need to complete a “Health Tracking Form” and a “Health Questionnaire” too.
At the airport, you’re advised to have your tickets on your phone, as well as check luggage in. where possible.
The hand luggage limits have been changed to 56 x 40 x 25cm or 10kg in Economy. On long-haul flights, Business passengers may take two pieces of hand luggage not exceeding 14kg.
And of course, it goes without saying that all passengers above the age of six must wear face masks covering nose and mouth with the airline preferring the use of surgical ones. You will need to bring enough masks for the flight too.
The list of requirements and changes to the passenger experience (which includes switching to single-use cutlery, removal of in-flight shopping and so on) can be found at https://www.iberia.com/es/en/covid-19/measures-taken/
