You will need to provide us with the following information:
- Full Name (as it appears on your passport)
- Date of Birth
- Passport Number
- Passport Details (Date and place of issue and expiry date)
- Visa Number
Additionally you may be required in some destinations (where boarding/landing cards are no longer collected on the airplane) to provide details such as where you are staying and contact details during your stay.
Please make sure that your API details match your passport details. If your API information and your documents do not match you may not be able to travel.
If you booked directly on flypop.com you can change API or contact details before you check-in by going to Manage my booking, log in to your account and click on ‘Edit’ next to the passenger name you want to update.
If you have already checked in, you can still make changes but remember to re-print or re-download your boarding card. All changes must be made before check-in for your flight closes.
It is always best to do this online before arriving at the airport. If you need to make changes at the check-In desk at you will be charged an administration fee.

If you wish to reserve a seat you can do so any time for one, any or all passengers on a Booking.
You can do this at the time you make your booking or at any time up to the opening of Check In at the airport 3 hours before the flight leaves by logging into Manage My Account.
