Mobile wallet app GCash and Airasia Philippines have partnered to allow travelers to pay digitally for flight, hotel bookings and travel retail items.

Customers can pay for their Airasia plane fare and accommodation in partner hotels using the GCash apps on their mobile phones.

They can also opt for contactless payment using the GCash app at airasia counters.

“At GCash, we have pioneered a number of digital payment innovations to help Filipinos during the pandemic,” says Martha Sazon, GCash President and Chief Executive Officer.

“This partnership with Airasia is a continuation of our thrust to provide users with safe and convenient payment solutions.”

Furthermore, Airasia travelers can have offers and discounts available exclusively to GCash’s over 40 million users.

“Our partnership with Gcash empowers our guests with flexible cashless options as they fly again,” according to Ricky Isla, Airasia Philippines’ chief executive officer.

“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,” he added.

“We look forward to strengthening this partnership with GCash as airasia continues to embark on its journey to becoming more than just an airline.”

Customers booking flights on Airasia can secure mobile payments online through the GCash app, via the airasia super app or by logging on to airasia.com.

On the airasia website, they can select their flights and add-ons and proceed to the payment page where they can pay via GCash on the “Wallet” tab.

GCash can also be used to pay for airasia shop purchases such as travel essentials.

Customers can also use the GCash app to pay at airasia check-in counters nationwide when paying for their additional luggage, meals, and other add-ons when checking in.
