Important Booking Procedure Advisory

To avoid unnecessary penalties and inconveniences to our passengers, please ensure that:

  • Prior to creating bookings, followed by issuance of tickets, all passengers’ names match to the names shown on their respective passports.
  • Name on booking, name on ticket, and name on passport are identical.

Please note that if an error is made and the name on the booking/ticket is different from that of the passport, all fare rules and penalties apply to the new tickets issued. There are no name changes permitted, no waivers granted, and no exceptions to rules allowed.

Westbound returning passengers will be required to purchase new tickets at Alitalia’s Airport Ticket Counters in Italy **correctly**, as tickets cannot be accepted with name discrepancies.
