Customers travelling with Singapore Airlines
(SIA) can now have the added flexibility of saving their mobile
boarding pass on Google Pay, the digital wallet platform and
online payment system developed by Google.
With this new initiative, customers without any
check-in baggage can simply
produce their boarding pass, which is saved to Google Pay, and
proceed straight to the boarding gate after clearing immigration
A customer will require an Android mobile
device and first generate his or her mobile boarding pass via the
SingaporeAir mobile app before being able to save it to Google
Prior to introducing this feature, SIA also
embarked on other digital projects with Google to develop a more
efficient on-ground experience for customers. These include
initiatives with Google Flight, Google Now and the more recent
Google Home. Through these initiatives, customers are able to
search for flight information, receive booking confirmation emails
and set reminders for upcoming flights.
“Our partnership with
Google and the introduction of saving one’s mobile boarding pass
to Google Pay is an example of SIA’s continued investment to
broaden and enhance our digital capabilities. This ultimately
demonstrates our commitment to constantly enhance the travel
experience, making it even more seamless for our customers,” said
Senior Vice President Sales & Marketing, Mr Campbell Wilson.
Checking-in for flights via a mobile boarding
pass on Google Pay is available only at certain airports. Check
