Airlines operate hundreds of flights every month - even thousands or tens of thousands for the largest ones. It’s no surprise that a portion of these flights is delayed. Iberia is no exception: some of the airline’s flights arrive later than planned at their destination.
When Iberia could have avoided the delay but failed to do so, it’s only fair that passengers get compensated. That’s what the European law states. EC261 protects your passenger rights and requires airlines to pay up to 600€ per passenger in compensation for flight delays.
While Iberia is not the best Spanish airline, it's more punctual than the industry average. Iberia isn't part of the world's best airlines because it performs poorly when it comes to processing passenger claims.

Once you’ve given us permission to handle your claim, we contact the airline, take care of the whole for you, and send you your compensation. You don’t have to lift a finger!
You might be entitled to up to 600€ from the airline!
The tab below provides specific data regarding the airline's on-time performance. It includes the amount of flights operated by the airline each month, which portion of these flight arrived on time (i.e with less than 15 minutes delay), which portion consists of delayed flights, and the average delay of their flights in minutes.

On-time Performance Rating: 7.7/10
Iberia sometimes has no choice but to cancel their flights. While it’s going to disrupt your travel plan, the EU Regulation 261/2004 once again protects your air passenger rights. In this situation as well, the airline must be responsible: travellers on flights cancelled for extraordinary circumstances are not eligible to compensation. These circumstances include strikes, air traffic control restrictions, adverse weather conditions, security threats, and a few more.
But when Iberia was responsible and failed to let you know about the cancellation at least 14 days before the departure date, EU law states that you can get up to 600€ for your trouble - the exact amount depends on the length of your journey.
ClaimCompass can help you get the money the airline owes you. Just fill out your flight details in our Cancelled Flight Compensation Checker and we will take care of the entire process for you.
Even if it turns out that you are not eligible to compensation, remember that when Iberia cancels a flight, they must either refund your ticket price or rebook you on the next flight to your destination (if there are seats available).
Unfortunately, Iberia isn’t part of the most cooperative airlines when it comes to processing their passengers’ claims for delayed or cancelled flight, as the data below suggests.
