Destination Open-Jaw

Updated: 2017-03-27.

destination open-jaw ticket, in airline parlance, is a kind of open-jaw flight itinerary where a roundtrip flight has the passenger’s destination differing in each direction. Different airports in the same city don’t usually count towards being open-jaw, however.

For example, let’s look at a British tourist visiting Italy: If they book London (LHR) to Milan (MXP), returning Rome (FCO) to London (LHR), this is known as a destination open-jaw (or just open-jaw, as it is the most common of open-jaw scenario). Their origin remained the same (starting and ending in London), but their destination cities (Milan and Rome) differed.
