Alaska Airlines is taking in-flight payment to the next level by introducing Apple’s Tap to Pay on iPhone for purchases. This means that you can simply tap your iPhone to pay for drinks or snacks on select flights, with plans to make it available across their entire fleet in the near future. With this feature, flight attendants will be able to accept Apple Pay, Google Pay, and other contactless payment methods.

The Tap to Pay on iPhone feature was announced by Apple earlier this year and is gradually being rolled out to various countries. According to a press release by Alaska Airlines, this new payment method will eliminate the need for swiping cards and make the process of purchasing in-flight beverages or snacks much more convenient. The airline aims to make this feature available on all their flights within the next few months.

Whether you’re traveling for business or leisure, this new payment method is designed to make your inflight experience more seamless and hassle-free. Get ready to embrace the convenience of contactless payment on your next flight!
