CellPoint Mobile Announces Integration of Android Pay, Supports Google's Payment App With Emirates
International carrier becomes the world's first airline to integrate
"Buy with Android Pay" into a mobile app for passengers
London (May 25, 2016) – CellPoint Mobile (www.cellpointmobile.com), a payments and mobile commerce solutions provider for the world's airlines, and Emirates, the world's largest international airline, now support Android Pay in the UK, making it easy, simple and secure for the airline's passengers to purchase tickets and travel products directly from the Android Pay-enabled Emirates mobile app.
"Almost all of today's passengers rely on their smartphones and mobile devices to pay for items and interact with airlines as they travel," said Kristian Gjerding, CEO of CellPoint Mobile. "Adding Android Pay to the pool of available payment options offers Emirates passengers simplicity, security and choice when paying for things with their Android phones."
According to Gjerding, the Android Pay integration is already live for passengers who have downloaded the Emirates app.
Available to U.S. consumers at select retail stores, Android Pay rolled out officially in the UK on May 18, 2016. CellPoint Mobile's integration of Android Pay makes Emirates the world's first airline to integrate "Buy with Android Pay" for its passengers. With Android Pay fully integrated into CellPoint Mobile's platform, roll-outs of the solution with new airline clients can be accomplished in days or weeks rather than months.
"We want to make it easier for businesses like Emirates to offer a faster in-app payment solution for their passengers," said Pali Bhat, director of product management for Google. "With Android Pay, people will be able to speed through checkout with their Android phones in as few as two clicks."
