UATP, a U.S.-based airline-owned payment network, announced on Friday it has partnered with Chase to allow airlines to easily accept Chase Pay as a payment and checkout option in their own mobile apps and websites by enabling a network-wise connection.
The duo reported that Chase customers may now use Chase Pay to checkout out at many places, including airport restaurants and shops, gas stations, parking garages, retailers and grocery stores. Customers can also use all of their eligible Chase Cards, using their existing Chase credentials for security and convenience. Speaking about the partnership, Jennifer Roberts, Head of Digital Products and Chase Pay at Chase, stated:
“Making checkout easier with Chase Pay will make it more convenient for our customers to book and enjoy travel.”
Ralph Kaiser, President and CEO of UATP, went on to add:
“UATP works diligently to meet the traveling customer’s demand for new payment types and rewards. Adding Chase Payboth meets that demand and expands the UATP Network base. We’ve had requests for Chase Pay from our carrier Members as well, and look forward to successfully delivering these capabilities through our partnership with Chase.”
