Can I correct or change passenger name on an Emirates ticket?

Name Correction

A name correction involves correcting your name on your ticket if your name is misspelled or does not match your passport provided the identity of the passenger does not change. This must be done before the first flight of your itinerary. 

If you have legally changed your name you may do this at any time throughout your journey. 


How do I request a name correction for my ticket?

For direct bookings, this must be done at least two hours before the departure of your flight. Passengers are required to contact Emirates either via our contact centre or one of our ticket offices.

For bookings made through a travel agent, you will need to make the request with the travel agent.


Is there a fee to correct my name on an Emirates ticket?

If your name is misspelled on the ticket, you may be able to get it changed. Here is an overview of fees:

All markets (excluding Brazil, India, Italy and UK):

USD30 per ticket for direct bookings (i.e. Emirates website, ticket offices or contact centres) and bookings made through a travel agent (or non-Emirates website).

Name Change

A name change involves transferring your ticket to someone else, by changing the name on your ticket to another person. Emirates does not permit name changes in any circumstances.
