All Nippon Airways (ANA) has launched an advanced mobile payment solution that will make it easier for eligible ANA Mileage Club (AMC) members to earn miles with their purchases. The introduction of ANA Pay on Dec 10 comes as ANA focuses on digitizing its business and expanding options for passengers. ANA has taken a number of steps in recent months to increase options for AMC members and has even run successful donation programs through its mileage club.
"The central goal of ANA has always been to create a safer, more convenient travel experience for passengers and this new payment service is an additional benefit," said Yasuko Kato, Chief Executive Officer and President of ANA X INC. "The new mobile payment service that ANA will launch with JBC increases convenience and travel options for ANA Mileage Club members while also incentivizing the use of mobile payment systems. By providing increased mileage for each purchase through ANA Pay, users will benefit and will have a range of new travel options become available to them."
ANA Pay will be available for AMC members in Japan who use JCB credit cards, and will allow users to make payments through the AMC app. By doubling the mileage that members earn on all purchases with each payment ANA will make possible the accumulation of mileage in multiple areas of their daily lives. The launch comes amid increasing demand for more mobile and digitized services, and ANA is proud to launch the new payment service to increase safety and raise convenience for passengers.© Japan Today
