Dubai-based Emirates Airline has launched Emirates Pay, a new industry payment solution for purchasing flight tickets, Dubai Media Office reported on Monday.
“We’re pleased to be the first airline to roll out this new account-based solution for our customers,” Dubai Media Office quoted Emirates’ chief financial officer Michael Doersam as saying.
“Customers who don’t have a credit card, and those already using direct payments for other purchases, will welcome the simplicity and security of this method when making travel purchases. When it comes to payments solutions, we’ve always kept close to the latest innovations so that we can offer our customers in different markets the most secure and convenient options,” he added.
