Travel is on people’s minds these days, as the vaccine rollout continues to pick up and government considers easing restrictions soon.
Even so, people continue to keep safe by maximizing the conveniences offered by a digital lifestyle.
Among the most popular is GCash, the top mobile wallet app in the country because it provides convenience and safety to users.
Recently, it partnered with Airasia to allow travelers to pay for their flight, hotel bookings and travel retail items through the Gcash app on their mobile phone.
Users can also opt for contactless payment using the GCash app at Airasia counters. This June, treats and discounts await customers to mark the launch of this partnership.
“At GCash, we have pioneered a number of digital payment innovations to help Filipinos during the pandemic, and this partnership with Airasia is a continuation of its thrust to provide users with safe and convenient payment solutions. Airasia supports this thrust as it continues to provide its customers with convenience and safety when flying with them,” Martha Sazon, GCash president and chief executive officer.
For Airasia, which has made flying accessible to a greater number of Filipinos through its low-cost plane fare offers, the partnership will bring safe and affordable travel even more within reach of Pinoys through the exciting promo offers and discounts that will be available exclusively to GCash’s over 40 million users.
“Providing convenience through digital and contactless solutions while observing the highest standards of safety has always been Airasia’s commitment to our guests. Our partnership with GCash, the country’s leading e-wallet, empowers our guests with flexible cashless options as we all gear up to fly again to our favorite leisure destinations. This is also an added convenience that makes the Airasia super app even more appealing to the consumer as the fastest growing super app in ASEAN. We look forward to strengthening this partnership with GCash as Airasia continues to embark on its journey to becoming more than just an airline,” said Ricky Isla, Airasia Philippines chief executive officer.
Customers booking flights on Airasia can secure mobile payments online through the GCash app, via the app or by logging on to airasia.com. On its website, they can select their flights and add-ons and proceed to the payment page where they can pay via GCash on the “Wallet” tab. GCash can also be used to pay for Airasia shop purchases such as travel essentials.
Customers can also use the GCash app to pay at Airasia check-in counters nationwide when paying for their additional luggage, meals and other
add-ons when checking in. They can simply open the GCash app, scan the QR code, enter the amount and pay.
The GCash app can be downloaded for free on Google Play for Android, Apple Store for iPhone and iPad users, or Huawei Gallery.
