easyJet, Europe’s leading airline, has today announced that customers can now use Apple Pay for bookings made via its iOS app.
Using Apple Pay customers booking flights through the airline’s industry-leading app on iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone SE, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 4 and iPad mini 3 will be able to process their booking in just a matter of seconds thanks to Apple Pay’s secure quick one-touch payment function. This allows users to select the card of their choice and authorise a secure payment via fingerprint recognition on their device.
James Millett, easyJet’s Head of Digital, said: “We’re delighted that from today we’re one of the first European airlines to introduce Apple Pay. Gone are the days of scrambling around searching for a bank card to book a flight. Checking out on our app is as easy as selecting Apple Pay and placing your finger on Touch ID. Booking flights or adding extras has never been so easy!”
Since the launch of easyJet’s iPhone app in 2011 the innovative app has evolved from easy booking and check-in functionality to include popular features like passport scanning, live flight tracking, mobile boarding passes and Touch ID. It is also complimented by the easyJet Apple Watch app and real-time airport push notifications for go-to-gate and bag reclaim information.
