CellPoint lets airlines launch Apple Pay

Airlines around the world now have the ability to add Apple Pay quickly to the roster of supported payment methods for passengers´ tickets purchases, thanks to the Converged Payment Gateway Solution from CellPoint Mobile.

Acting as a hub of pre-integrated payment services, CellPoint Mobile´s Converged Payment Gateway (CPG) provides software development kits (SDKs) and application program interfaces (APIs) that airlines can leverage to integrate Apple Pay to passengers in a matter of hours or days, rather than weeks or months.

Emirates, the world´s largest international airline and a CellPoint Mobile client, has become the first global airline to support Apple Pay for the purchase of airline tickets.

In addition to Apple Pay, the CellPoint Mobile CPG solution supports a variety of currencies, devices and a range of payment methods, including payment cards, third-party wallets, interbank payments, alternate payments and various Payment Service Providers (PSPs).

CellPoint Mobile helps airlines around the world navigate and own the complex payments ecosystem from beginning to end, regardless of their passengers´ preferred currency, payment method, device or channel.
