Air Niugini and BSP Financial Group (BSP) customers can now book and pay for airline tickets instantly and securely online without using their BSP Cards via BSP Pay online payment option.
BSP Pay payment solution allows BSP account holders to carry out online payments on registered merchants without using their BSP cards.
The only information required is their CIF (BSP ID) and registered mobile number to receive security codes.
The partnership has taken an exciting step in diversifying Air Niugini airline ticket payments by accepting BSP Pay as an alternate online payment option.
BSP General Manager Digital, Nuni Kulu said that, “This payment solution allows BSP customers who do not own a visa or credit card, to be able to purchase tickets online,” said Mrs Kulu
Nuni added that: “With BSP Pay, our customers will be able to benefit from another secure payment option and enjoy a hassle-free express checkout experience. The payment system securely and instantly generates a dynamic security code that validates each transaction with a one-time passcode through the customer’s registered mobile number. The payment process is so simple; passengers actually skip the physical reach for the wallet or purse to retrieve bankcards for details.”
Air Niugini General Manager, Commercial Paul Abbot said with BSP Pay, it now gives the airline’s non-credit cardholders a safe and convenient alternative form of payment online.
“Over 70% of our customers are domestic travelers, PNG based, therefore the BSP Pay option is a convenient and flexible online payment option for them. It greatly improves access and people’s ability to book travel from the comfort of their own home and now adds to other forms of online payment we already have including Visa, Mastercard and Amex. Air Niugini also accepts points plus cash payment for its Destinations Loyalty members and poli pay online payment option for travel originating out of Australia.
Apart from the online payment, Air Niugini also has other forms of payment including BSP Mobile Tickets payment option, Cash and UATP card.
