Delta Air Lines on Thursday announced that customers using their latest version of the Fly Delta app can now book and pay for flights via Apple Pay. This announcement now makes Delta the first U.S. based airline to allow its customers to purchase their tickets using Apple Pay. The airline says that this makes the booking process even faster and easier than ever before for iPhone users.
Purchasing tickets using Apple Pay within the Fly Delta app is as simple as the touch of a finger and users will continue to receive all of the rewards and beneﬁts offered by their credit and debit cards.
As part of Delta’s commitment to investing in mobile technology, this latest feature to the Fly Delta app is just one of many digital improvements designed to elevate the overall customer experience.
“Our Fly Delta app has come a long way since it was first introduced in 2010. More than 18 million customers have now downloaded the Fly Delta app and we are excited to be the first U.S. based airline to allow our customers to book and pay for their tickets with Apple Pay. By providing a way to pay for flights with just the touch of a fingertip, Delta continues to optimize our robust mobile channels and provide an easy-to-use and seamless digital experience for our customers,” said Rhonda Crawford, Vice President – eCommerce.
Security and privacy is at the core of Apple Pay. When you add a credit or debit card to Apple Pay, the actual card numbers are not stored on the device or on Apple servers and each transaction is authorized with a one-time unique dynamic security code.
