Hello, how can I help you?


Am I allowed to carry ashes of a deceased person in an urn onboard as hand luggage?

Iberia permits the transportation of ashes or cremated human remains as hand luggage, in a suitable funeral urn, duly covered and discreetly kept out of sight, and with theft-proof covering. You will be asked to provide the suitable death and cremation certificates, and they may be required at the airport of origin. Please remember to bring them with you. When ashes are transported from one country to another it is advisable to contact the Consulate of the country of destination regarding possible requirements by the local authorities.
