Middle name for French passport

Flubble
New Arrival

Hi,

Southwest ask for middle name to book tickets. That's mean second first name I guess.

We have French Passport and on ESTA we have only our Firstname.

Could you please inform us if we have to indicate our second Firts Name or if it's not necessary for French passenger ?

 

Thanks for your help.

The middle name field is optional, so to my knowledge it can be left blank. A quick tweet to @southwestair or booking by phone would likely give you a concrete answer. Good luck!

Bonjour, @Flubble

 

You do not have to fill out the middle name space. Many Americans have a first name and a middle name. It is ok to leave it empty.

 

Bon voyage!
