From today, Singapore Airline customers from seven countries including Singapore and USA are able to purchase their flight tickets using Paypal. The service will also extend to 17 countries. Read on for the details.
Singapore Airlines customers in the US, Singapore and five other Asia Pacific countries and territories can now pay for their flights with PayPal on singaporeair.com. This service will be made available to the Airline’s customers in up to 17 countries, which claims to be the largest collaboration between PayPal and an Asian carrier to date.
After booking Singapore Airlines flights online, travellers can now pay for tickets using their PayPal account in as few as three clicks and without the need to re-type their credit card or financial details.
A year-long global marketing campaign will be launched to celebrate the collaboration between Singapore Airlines and PayPal. The first marketing promotion allows travellers in the initial launch markets who pay for their Singapore Airlines flight with PayPal the chance to win back the price of their flight (up to S$2,000). One lucky winner will be selected daily from 7 March 2011 to 6 April 2011.
Besides using their online balance, PayPal users can pay for their Singapore Airlines flights from their bank accounts, credit cards or debit cards that are linked to their PayPal account.
