On the occasion of Christmas , many people take the opportunity to travel to different parts of the country, both to visit their loved ones and to discover new places, and one of the most used means of transport for this purpose is the plane . For this reason, during this time of year doubts and questions arise regarding flying: number of packages to board, claims after a delay, flying with the return ticket without having used the outbound one … has decided to answer the most common questions so that traveling by plane is even more practical.


First of all, recalls that the new regulations allow boarding, in addition to hand luggage, with packages and belongings that you carry with you, these not being considered luggage. Of course, it is a provision applicable only to flights with departure / origin in Spain.


Reuse tickets

Regarding the reuse of tickets, the decalogue also includes the possibility of being able to use the return ticket without having previously used the outward one. This is an option contrary to the “ No show ” clause applied by the airlines, whereby if any of the purchased routes was not used, the remaining routes included in the same ticket were automatically canceled.


The most frequent doubts among travelers have to do with delays and the corresponding claims. You should know that once the three hours have passed, you can claim it, corresponding to compensation of between 250 and 600 euros, depending on the distance. On the other hand, the airline company is obliged to report any alteration in the transport conditions. Furthermore, in the event of a strike, passengers are entitled to compensation or a ticket refund.



Regarding documentation, minors under 14 years of age do not have the duty to travel with their DNI to national destinations, as long as they travel with their parents and they carry the family book. On the other hand, on national or community flights you can travel with an expired ID or passport, including a driving license if it is issued in Spain.
