Emirates Airline now offers Visa Checkout for passengers in 15 countries.
The service, already used by a number of global brands, from Gap to Starbucks, allows customers to pay with their Visa cards online and on any device, in just a few clicks.
Visa Checkout is now available to Emirates customers in countries including Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Colombia, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, South Africa, the UAE and the USA. Enrolling in Visa Checkout is a simple, one-time process, taking only a few minutes. Consumers simply store their shipping and payment information in a secure account with Visa once, and they never have to re-enter it again when shopping online at all merchants globally who offer Visa Checkout.
Emirates customers can now conveniently use Visa Checkout with any Visa debit or credit card to make Emirates Airline ticket purchases on the emirates.com website.
The service solves the frustration that many online shoppers face in having to submit large amounts of information – such as their name, card numbers and billing address - each time they want to make an online purchase.
Visa's vice president of products for Central & Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa, Paul McCrea, said: “For Emirates customers, Visa Checkout is quick and easy to use, particularly as they book air tickets more frequently on smaller devices like mobile phones and tablets but still want to use the payment cards they already know and trust. Ultimately, Visa Checkout will ensure that consumers have a seamless and secure experience while booking a host of exciting travel options on the world’s largest international airline. Globally, our Visa Checkout merchant partners are already seeing the benefits, and we are expecting similar results with Emirates.”
