Hello I put in a wrong middle name.
As an illustration, I put in: Peter John Smith.
But the correct name should be: Peter Jack Smith.
I read from your website that: "JR regulations state that only the first and last name should be an exact match as it appears in the passengers passport. There is no requirement to include the middle name, and it is optional."
Will this be a problem?
Thanks so much.

Hi there,

Your name should match your passport, that said middle names can be omitted.

If you do have a mistake, then I suggest contacting our support team for a re-issue.

Kind regards,
