S7 Airlines launches new option to pay for air tickets via Android Pay


S7 Airlines, a oneworld® global airline alliance member, has implemented support for payments via the Android Pay system in its application for mobile devices based on the Android operation system. Owners of such gadgets will be able to pay for air tickets in just two clicks without entering the bank card details.

You can pay for flights of S7 Airlines and partner companies, as well as for additional services (e.g. extra space seats or excess baggage) via Android Pay in the S7 Airlines official mobile app (available through Google Play). When proceeding from ticket booking to payment the interface will prompt the user to choose the most convenient method for them to pay for the purchase. In case of payment via Android Pay you will not be additionally asked to enter your bank card details.

Android Pay is a fast and secure instrument for mobile payments. The bank card details are not stored on the device and remain secure and unavailable to sellers of goods or services. Payments can only be made from an unlocked device.

“The number of passengers buying tickets through the mobile app, as well as that of Android based gadget users keeps growing steadily. For their convenience we are constantly improving our services. The option to pay for tickets via Android Pay allows for more convenient, quick and secure payments, since there is no need to enter your bank card details in this case”, Dmitry Chuyko, S7 Group E-Commerce Director, said.

Android Pay is supported on devices based on Android 4.4 or higher. In order to enable payments for purchases in the S7 Airlines app, you need to enter your bank card details in the Android Pay app downloaded through Google Play.
