Airfare payment through mobile phone
Air Niugini has announced a partnership with Bank South Pacific (BSP) to allow BSP customers to purchase airline tickets through mobile banking. The new service will be offered to subscribers of bmobile, Digicel and Vodafone who are registered BSP mobile banking customers.
The new functionality on BSP’s mobile banking brings greater convenience to customers, who can now pay direct from their bank accounts using the short code *277#.
Air Niugini chief executive officer Simon Foo says the airline is continually striving to deliver the best service in providing greater accessibility, ease and convenience to customers.
“The BSP and Air Niugini partnership has been in place for over 40 years and this exciting development is just one avenue by which we aim to provide greater accessibility and satisfaction to our customers.”
BSP general manager retail, Paul Thornton, says the partnership is a perfect fit for the bank’s commitment to delivering convenient and innovative banking solutions.
“We are committed to make banking more accessible to all, and with this partnership with bmobile, Vodafone and Digicel, we are able to reach right across the country to every BSP customer who is registered to our mobile banking product.”
Customers can sign up for BSP mobile banking to access the service by simply contacting the BSP Service Centre on 320 1212. ■
