Published on : Saturday, August 20, 2016

CheapOairCheapOair, a leading flights-focused next generation concierge travel service consisting of a traditional travel agency with a digital front end, is now offering customers the option to pay via their Android smartphone with Android Pay. Following the announcement of the Android Pay pilot program, Google identified key e-commerce mobile apps to join in the development phase of the project. CheapOair was selected as the only online travel agency to participate, consistent with its role as an industry leader in technological innovation.

 

Android Pay is a convenient, easy-to-use platform giving customers another secure payment option for mobile transactions. Once customers have chosen their desired itinerary, they can simply select Android Pay at checkout and within seconds their payment is safely initiated.

 

CheapOair’s in-house Android development team played an instrumental role in the functionality of Android Pay as it relates to the online travel agency environment. The overall architecture and business process was tested and approved by Google, Chase Paymentech, and CheapOair’s internal booking and processing teams. Lessons gleaned from CheapOair’s success with the integration are now being used as benchmarks to onboard new merchants on to the Android Pay platform.

 

“With the phenomenal growth in Android device adoption both in the US and worldwide, CheapOair is excited to be the first online travel agency to launch Android Pay,” said Daniel Lizio-Katzen, Senior Vice President of Product and Revenue. “We expect that it will have a transformative impact on how our customer’s book and purchase travel on their mobile devices.”

 

In order to offer more flexibility and convenience, CheapOair is dedicated to adding payment options customers prefer. Android Pay joins an array of other payment options accepted by CheapOair including all major credit cards, PayPal, and Apple Pay.

 

The CheapOair Android app can be downloaded for free through the Google Play store. Users praise the convenience of being able to use Android Pay for their flight bookings and since its launch has already grown into a highly-used mobile payment method.
