Singapore Airlines Adds Android Pay and Apple Pay to Mobile App

Singapore Airlines has added Android Pay and Apple Pay mobile payment services to its mobile app.

 Customers can now use the popular services to pay for air tickets, redemption booking-related fees or for other purchases, such as preferred seat selection and travel insurance, at the time of booking.

With Android Pay and Apple Pay, customers are not required to fill in payment information prior to making a purchase through the SingaporeAir app.

 For Android Pay, the credit or debit card details and billing addresses of customers are already stored in their Android Pay accounts. With Apple Pay, the card details are not stored on the mobile device. Instead, a unique Device Account Number is assigned, encrypted and securely stored in the Secure Element on the mobile device.

“Cashless payment is a growing trend not just in Singapore but in many parts of the world,” said Singapore Airlines’ Senior Vice President Sales and Marketing, Mr Campbell Wilson. “At Singapore Airlines, we are constantly exploring how we can improve the customer experience across our digital touchpoints. Having cutting edge mobile payment platforms such as Android Pay and Apple Pay provides our customers a seamless and more efficient payment option whenever they make a purchase on our mobile app.”
