Double Open-Jaw

Updated: 2017-03-27.

double open-jaw ticket, in airline parlance, is a kind of open-jaw flight itinerary where a roundtrip flight has the passenger’s origin and 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 Manchester (MAN), this is known as a double open-jaw; both their origin (LHR & MAN) and destination (MXP & FCO) changed.
