US Airways becomes first airline to accept MasterCard PayPass in-flight

Available in-flight with US Airways

US Airways is the first airline to accept MasterCard PayPass enabled cards and devices for in-flight purchases (view press release). Enabled by GuestLogix, an onboard retail technology supplier, passengers can make purchases by tapping their card or devices on a PayPass accepting reader.

 “At US Airways, we are always looking for ways to enhance the service we provide to our customers,” said Hector Adler, VP Inflight Services for US Airways. “With this new solution, our crew has the technology they need to provide faster service for our MarketPlace onboard offerings of food, drinks & more.”

“US Airways has been an extremely forward-looking customer throughout our four-year relationship, so it comes as no surprise that they were the first to adopt this new technology,” said GuestLogix, President and CEO, Brett Proud. “Contactless payments are ideal for both passenger and Flight Attendant convenience as the transaction time is significantly reduced when using MasterCard PayPass.”
