Flight Reconfirmation Procedure For Hotel Guests

Purpose of Flight Reconfirmation SOP: The Front Office / Travel Desk / Concierge team should know the correct standard for reconfirming the guest’s flight. No guest’s flight should be missed or wrong information given to the guest, as this creates a negative last impression for the guest.

All flight reconfirmation requests of the guests must be accurately tracked and followed up in the correct way in order to ensure guest satisfaction. The last impression should be always a memorable one that the guest carries on with him and will have an impact on this feedback of his stay at the hotel.

Flight Reconfirmation Procedure Standard Procedure:

Retrieve flight details from the air ticket:

  • Flight Number
  • Departure date/time
  • Flight Destination
  • Name of passenger
  • Ticket number
