For identification at the check-in counter, you must use a credit card with the card number and name stamped on it. You are required to input your first name and last name exactly as displayed on the credit card. Passengers who fail to do so will be denied boarding unless they purchase a full-fare ticket at the airport ticket counter.

For any abnormal credit card transactions that occur when purchasing, an email will be sent to the email address provided as a notification of the transaction error. We have the right to request the passenger/credit card holder to present the credit card used upon purchasing or the passenger/credit card holder may be requested to pay the flight ticket in cash before taking the flight.
