Cleartrip enables Apple Pay

As part of its efforts to make travel simple, Cleartrip announced the integration of Apple Pay on its mobile application.

With the launch of Apple’s digital wallet in the UAE, Cleartrip customers can now have a quicker and safer way to check out on the mobile app. Apple Pay supports all devices running iOS 11 and works with iPhone SE, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and later, and Apple Watch.

“Understanding and addressing our customers’ needs, like easy payment options, is at the heart of why we launched Apple Pay on the Cleartrip app,” said Stuart Crighton, Founder and CEO of Cleartrip.

To support the launch, customers using Apple Pay to purchase on the Cleartrip iOS app will benefit from an instant discount of AED 100 on flights.

Apple rolled out Apple Pay in the UAE in a move that is expected to revolutionize the country’s digital economy. The service is already available in a number of countries including the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, China, Russia, France, Japan and Hong Kong. Cashless payments have been rapidly gaining momentum in the country, with the government identifying them as a top priority in the UAE’s Vision 2021.
