Ryanair, Europe’s No.1 airline, today (21 Jul) announced that its iOS app now supports Apple Pay, providing customers, families and business travellers with even more ways to book and pay for the lowest fares on the Ryanair app, which has been downloaded over 12 million times.
Ryanair customers with Apple Pay accounts now have an easy, secure and private way to pay for their Ryanair flights using Apple Pay, ensuring even faster bookings, mobile boarding passes and multiple in-app features, as Ryanair continues its journey to becoming the ‘Amazon of Travel.’
Apple Pay integration is the latest initiative under Year 4 of our “Always Getting Better” programme, including connecting flights through Rome Fiumicino and Milan Bergamo, long haul Air Europa flights on sale on the Ryanair.com website, a new partnership with the Erasmus Student Network and an enhanced Ryanair Rooms website – with much more to come.
Ryanair’s Robin Kiely said :
“Apple Pay is at the cutting edge of mobile payment technology, easy to set up and makes paying for Ryanair flights even easier for consumers. As Europe’s No.1 airline, we are now pleased to offer our customers this innovative payment option which is transforming mobile payments, providing even more ways for consumers to book Europe’s lowest fares on the Ryanair app.”
Apple Pay is easy to set up and users will continue to receive all of the rewards and beneﬁts offered by credit and debit cards. In stores, Apple Pay works with iPhone SE, iPhone 6 and later, and Apple Watch.
Online shopping in apps and on websites accepting Apple Pay is as simple as the touch of a finger with Touch ID, so there’s no need to manually fill out lengthy account forms or repeatedly type in shipping and billing information.
When paying for goods and services on the go in apps or Safari, Apple Pay works with iPhone 6 and later, iPhone SE, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, and iPad mini 3 and later.
You can also use Apple Pay in Safari on any Mac introduced in or after 2012 running macOS Sierra and confirm the payment with iPhone 6 or later or Apple Watch, or with Touch ID on the new MacBook Pro.
