EasyJet has announced that customers can now use Apple Pay on Web for bookings made on easyJet.com. This makes payment a seamless “2 touch” process.
Apple Pay is already available via easyJet’s iOS mobile app however from today customers will also be able to confirm their booking via easyJet.com on their Apple iPad or Apple Mac in just a matter of seconds thanks to Apple Pay; a secure, quick and private one-touch payment function. Customers using easyJet.com to make a booking will see a ‘Buy with Apple Pay’ button on the checkout screen and will then be able to select the card of their choice and authorise a secure payment via Touch ID fingerprint recognition.
If the customer is on an Apple Mac there will be a seamless hand-off to the customer’s iPhone where they will use Touch ID or their Apple Watch to authorise the payment. There is no need to enter in any card details at all making it a quick, secure and easy way to pay.
James Millett, easyJet’s Head of Digital, said: “We’re delighted that from today we’re one of the first airlines in the world to introduce Apple Pay on Web for easyJet.com. We’re all about innovating to make it easier for customers and we’re proud to be leading the way in the future of payments.”
It is also complimented by the easyJet Apple Watch app and real-time airport push notifications for go-to-gate and bag reclaim information.
