Correcting a typo in a name

Oops! Making a typing mistake happens to the best of us. No worries though: if it’s only a typo, we’ve got you covered.

How to make a name correction

Noticed a typo in your name? If you booked your trip via KLM and are flying with KLM, Air France, or Delta Air Lines, you can contact us to request a name correction free of charge.

If one of your flights is operated by a different partner airline, please send us your request at least 72 hours before departure. We’ll do our best to help you.

You don’t have to request a name correction if:

  • you have multiple first names and only the first is shown in your booking – it’s correct that only 1 first name is displayed;
  • you used your maiden name, as long as it’s the same last name as on your passport;
  • your name is shown without spaces – our system did that, it’s not a typo.

Naturally, you cannot replace your name by someone else’s – the ticket stays in your name.

Bookings via a travel agent

For trips arranged via a travel agent, please contact them directly to make a name correction. We recommend you do this well in advance, since it may take a while to process.
