Low-cost airline AirAsia partnered with mobile wallet GCash to deliver safety and convenience to travelers when paying for their flight, hotel bookings, and travel retail items.
The partnership allows customers to pay for their airasia plane fare and accommodation in partner hotels through use of the GCash apps on their mobile phones.
Airasia customers can also opt for contactless payment using the GCash app at airasia counters. Exciting offers and discounts await customers to mark the launch of the partnership.
According to Martha Sazon, GCash president and chief executive officer, the mobile wallet app has pioneered a number of digital payment innovations to help Filipinos during the pandemic. “The partnership with airasia is a continuation of its thrust to provide users with safe and convenient payment solutions. With this partnership, GCash users can now enjoy exclusive exciting promo offers from airasia,” she said.
The partnership will bring safe and affordable travel even more within reach of Pinoys through the exciting promo offers and discounts that will be available exclusively to GCash’s over 40 million users, according to airasia.
“This is also an added convenience that makes the airasia super app even more appealing to the consumer as the fastest growing super app in Asean. We look forward to strengthening this partnership with GCash as airasia continues to embark on its journey to becoming more than just an airline,” said Ricky Isla, airasia Philippines chief executive officer.
