Board faster

Aena and Iberia have launched a facial recognition project at Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas Airport that uses a single initial record to go through the checkpoint and board faster.

How it works

What do I need?

To be flying with Iberia from Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas airport on a flight designated as biometric.

To have an electronic ID card or passport and a boarding pass. If you have a DNI 3.0 or e-passport you can register on the Aena or Iberia  App as long as the device is Android and has NFC. If you have a DNI 2.0 you can register with the system at the facial recognition stand located between Iberia desks 847 and 848 (T4).

Be over the age of 18.


Register at the biometric stand or on the Aena or Iberia App.

Once registered, you will no longer have to show your documentation at the subsequent stages (although you will have to have it on you).


Go to the security checkpoints in T4 (general or fast track) and look for the exclusive access point with this icon.

The camera will verify your identity and you will be able to access directly.

Boarding gates

Boarding gates are offering a new access system that verifies your identity and enables you to board planes directly without showing any documentation.
