Can I change the passenger name on an Emirates ticket?

You can correct the name on your ticket (subject to fees) if your name is misspelled on the ticket. 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.

Emirates does not allow transfer of the ticket to someone else, by changing the name on your ticket to another person.

We may request further evidence from you in regards to any request to change the name on your ticket.
