Online Booking: Details

How should I enter the passenger names and can I change them afterwards?

You must ensure that the first name and surname of the passenger for whom you are making a reservation exactly match the passenger’s passport that will be used to travel. If the passenger’s name is about to change (due to marriage or other reason) please verify and enter the name as per the passport that will be used to travel. For a passenger with two family names, enter both names and omit the space or hyphen between them.

You are responsible for the accuracy of the personal data given to Emirates when booking online. If you are unsure how to enter the passenger name when booking online, please contact your local Emirates office before completing your booking. Tickets cannot be transferred to other passengers, and any error in name or spelling of the name will mean that the ticket will have to be cancelled (with the applicable cancellation charges) and a new one purchased in the correct name, subject to current fares and availability of flights.
