Air Canada integrates Alipay, WeChat Pay for online bookings

Wednesday 22 August 2018 00:25 CET | News

Air Canada has announced the implementation of Alipay and WeChat Pay to allow customers to book flights through the airline’s US and Hong Kong websites.

This integration is part of the airline’s global expansion strategy as it increases its focus on providing its international customers with their preferred payment methods when purchasing outside China.

Due to the agreement, Air Canada becomes the first North American airline to offer support for Alipay and WeChat Pay.

Earlier in August 2018, Mashreq Bank has announced that it would expand its partnership with Alipay to 1,000 retailers in UAE, as it seeks to capitalise on the influx of Chinese travelers.
