Hyphen in Double Barrell name?

Hi,

My Partner has a double barrelled name and is due to go on holiday in a couple of weeks however the booking confirmation does not have the hyphen in his name, Will this cause a problem?

his name is Liam-Martin but the booking confirmation says Liammartin.

No they don't do hyphens in the ticketing side of most (all?) airline reservation systems.

Nxt time you ask though, perhaps a good idea to mention the airline? And indeed for airline questions post on the Air Travel forum where I see its yesterday been asked and answered many times

Thanks for your help. First time using the forum.

Travelling with Ryan Air to Palma. I think it should be fine. I ddin't realise that most systems do not accept hyphens. It was a friend who completed the booking.

Thanks again.

My name is hyphenated and this never shows in any travel documantation, despite me telling them specifically.

I have never had any problems with this when travelling so I wouldnt worry :)
