Spelling mistakes can and do happen, and they should not come in the way of your convenient flight, as far as you are traveling within India and you are carrying a valid ID proof. But if you are traveling outside India, you would need to correct your name spelling. For this, you can call the customer care number of SpiceJet, and request a change. SpiceJet is known for good customer service as well, and your issue will be resolved within no time. Their toll free number is 1800 180 3333.

If a wrong name has been written

Sometimes, airlines including SpiceJet end up writing wrong names in your booking. It may be yours, your agent’s or the airline’s mistake, but it is ultimately you who will have to suffer during check-in. If you notice a wrong name or surname in your ticket, take steps to correct it immediately. SpiceJet makes your job convenient by making a remark against your PNR. The staff at the check-in counter will come to know about the mistake, and they will let you in without any problem. To get such remark, you would be asked to fill out an online form or send a request email to the airline, and your request will be processed within 48 hours.

Transferring the name of the passenger

Transferring the booking to another passenger’s name is strictly prohibited by SpiceJet. This is because someone may buy the ticket at low price, and then sell it to someone else to make profit. If you want to transfer the booking to another passenger’s name, you are required to tell this to the airline at least 2 hours before the time of the flight departure. In that case, your booking will be cancelled and you will have to make a new booking, only if available. You will be required to pay a fee of INR 2250 per booking to do this. Any fare differences will also be charged accordingly. You can make the changes online through the SpiceJet website, or at the sales center or reservations counter of the airline at the airport. If you do not inform the change before 2 hours and if you do not show up for the flight, your ticket will be cancelled and all your money will be forfeited.

The exception

SpiceJet allows you to cancel or reschedule the flight if it is cancelled or more than 90 minutes late. It is one of the only few airlines that allow passengers to find alternatives online. All charges will be revoked for such a flight, and the customer will get full refund. To make such changes, you can visit the SpiceJet official website, click on the ‘Changes/Refund’ button, provide the needed information to make the changes, and receive the revised itinerary. If you have asked for a full refund, you will get it in your bank account within one week.
