Delta says is the first US airline to allow passengers to buy tickets using Apple Pay.
Passengers buy the tickets using Apple Pay within the Fly Delta app.
Passengers will continue to receive all of the rewards and beneﬁts offered by their credit and debit cards.
While the app supports Apple Pay, but it’s not yet available for SkyMiles award bookings, trip extras, trip insurance or seat upgrades.
Rhonda Crawford, Vice President – eCommerce:
“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.”
Security and privacy are at the core of Apple Pay. When passengers add a credit or debit card to Apple Pay, the 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.
