Updating the name element

Ticketed reservations:
In name corrections and name changes the fee needs to be collected before contacting Finnair for update of the name element.

Unticketed reservations:
Name correction (passenger remains the same) is possible for reservations made the same day. In all other scenarios you need to cancel the incorrect PNR and create a new one according to current availability.

Special cases

When a passenger has only one name in the passport, enter that name as the surname and as a first name enter FNU (First Name Unknown), for example: JOHNSON/FNU MS:

When the first name is missing:

JOHNSON/FNU MS
Add the SSR check-in: SSR CKIN AY HN1 PSGR NO FIRSTNAME/S1-4
In addition, please contact Finnair Agent info.

When the family name is missing:

ELISABETH/FNU MS
Add the SSR check-in lines to the PNR: SSR CKIN AY HN1 PSGR NO LASTNAME1-4
In addition, please contact Finnair Agent info.

One-letter family names:

Amadeus does not allow one-letter family names. At least two letters are needed.
If there is only one letter in the family name, please insert first the letter then an empty space and the gender indicator. For example if the family name is Y: Y MR/LINUS MR
