Purchase ticket for someone even you are not traveling

Flight tickets can be booked and purchased by even those who will not be taking the flight.
This lets you give flight tickets as gifts to family members and friends living far away.

How to use

STEP1Book tickets in the passengers' names, then complete the purchase process

Please be sure to make a note of the Order Number provided upon payment completion online.

  • *When making payment by credit card online, the Order Number will be shown only once, after the payment is processed. Please make a note of the number.

STEP2Inform passengers the Reservation Number and Order Number

Along with all other flight booking information, such as flight numbers, dates, Reservation Number, be sure to give passengers the Order Number.

  • *Although flight booking information will be sent by e-mail once the booking is completed, the e-mail does not contain the Order Number.
    Please inform the Order Number to the passenger separately.

STEP3Prepare things needed for the flight

Passengers will need to have their 2D barcodes (e-ticket itinerary/receipt) or JMB/JALCARD ready for boarding.

2D barcode (e-ticket itinerary/receipt)

2D barcode can be acquired from the Manage Booking screen.
JMB members will need to log in, while non-JMB members will need to provide flight numbers, departure dates, and Reservation Number in order to acquire 2D barcode.
If the passenger is not a JMB member, he or she will need to input the Reservation Number to acquire the 2D barcode.

  • *One barcode is issued for one person. The barcode is non-transferable.
  • *Although it is not obligatory to reacquire the 2D barcode after you change the booking, we recommend reacquiring the most updated one before departure to ensure that the most up-to-date information is shown.
    In case the Reservation Number is changed, it is necessary to reacquire the 2D barcode.
