Emirates is offering UK customers the opportunity to use Apple Pay to pay for flights.
“We’re proud to be the first global airline to introduce Apple Pay for ticket purchases and we hope this will contribute towards a more seamless customer experience which begins even before they board our flights,” commented Thierry Antinori, chief commercial officer, Emirates.
Emirates will offer Apple Pay within its app making online booking as simple as a single touch. The airline launched an Android app in June enabling passengers to book flights and manage bookings on its global mobile platform.
Apple Pay is compatible with iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3.
Purchasing tickets via Apple Pay will still allow customers to receive all of the rewards and beneﬁt’s offered by credit and debit cards.
