Question about security in Barajas

Jump to last reply

I will be landing in Barajas T4 on American and changing to an Iberia flight to Valencia. I can't remember if I will have to go through security again in Spain or if I will remain in a secure area for the entire process of changing planes.

I'm asking because I know that I can carry my hiking poles onto the plane in the US, having done it many times, so long as they are broken down and have rubber tips on the end. But I don't know about the policies in Spain and would hate to have them confiscated when I'm rushing to get onto a domestic flight and don't have enough time to go out to ticketing and check them.

Anyway, it'd be great if someone remembers whether the whole T4 is secure or whether passengers making connections have to re-enter. Thanks a lot.
