mobile payments a way of life for its customers around the world. We are happy
to now help airBaltic further develop its customer experience by making it
safer and quicker to pay and send money” - says Damien Perillat, Managing
Director of PayPal. “Moreover, we believe the SeatSale campaign will
provide great added-value for consumers already thinking about their future holiday
plans and searching for interesting destinations.”
Chief Commercial Officer of airBaltic: “Our customer is the main focus for us at airBaltic – both when we
introduce new routes linking the Baltic region with Western Europe and
Scandinavia, and when we improve our service by opening up a new payment option
that our customers prefer.”
The special offer will be available for all airBaltic destinations, including such cities as Rome, Dubrovnik,
Nice and Barcelona. Customers who decide to purchase a flight from airBaltic and pay with PayPal, will
enjoy a fast, easy and convenient payment service ahead of their holidays.
There is no minimum purchase price or special code for customers - the
only requirement is to buy tickets using PayPal. The SeatSale campaign itself
is airBaltic’s biggest sales campaign
to date. It is also compatible with other promotions, discounts and sales
offered by the airline. All payments processed by PayPal will be available in
local currencies (PLN, USD, CZK, GBP, DKK, SEK, NOK and CHF) to make the whole
payment process even easier.
