Spring Airlines has completed the fleet-wide rollout of GuestLogix’s handheld POS devices to enable payment for the purchase of duty free items onboard its aircraft using China UnionPay credit cards.
In the near future, Spring Airlines will also use the GuestLogix solution to accept payment for food and beverages using additional internationally recognised credit cards. The carrier may also deploy Guestogix’s OnTouch destination merchandising which sells local attraction and transportation passes.
“Above all else, Spring Airlines values safety, affordability, innovation and convenience, and we take these principles into account when evaluating and implementing new initiatives,” explained Zhang Xiao Lu, general manager of Spring Airlines Inflight Duty-Free Company Ltd. “As the leading provider in its space, GuestLogix was the ideal match for Spring, given its revolutionary approach to travel retail. We are delighted to now be utilising GuestLogix technology to improve the onboard retailing experience for our
passengers as well as to elevate our retail performance.”
Guestlogix’s Global Payment Gateway and Ancillary Insights business intelligence platforms have also been implemented to optimise Spring Airlines’ retail performance.
