Low-cost airline FlySafair and Fintech company Zapper have partnered to enable travellers to use their smartphones to make easier and more convenient payments when booking flights online.
Travellers can now use the Zapper app to pay for FlySafair tickets online, as well as at the airline’s web kiosk and sales desk at OR Tambo International Airport.
Customers simply select the option to pay with Zapper, scan a QR code on their computer screen with their smartphone and confirm the amount due.
Customers booking tickets via mobile devices enjoy the same ease and convenience. Zapper’s deep-linking technology allows them to tap the generated QR code to confirm payment.
In this way passengers experience simplified payment journeys, resulting in an enhanced FlySafair experience long before they even get on board.
“By introducing Zapper as an additional payment method, we provide our customers more options and greater flexibility. Zapper is a good fit in driving FlySafair’s strategy to become the most innovative airline in the country – driven by leading edge technology trends and seamless user behaviour,” said Eswee Vorster, FlySafair’s Head of IT & Innovation.
