An online and mobile payments provider has partnered with cloud reservation system AeroCRS to allow passengers make payments to 10 airlines in the region through mobile money.

The service by 3G Direct Pay Group (3GDP) will cover M-Pesa and Airtel Money in Kenya. Others are M-Pesa, Tigo-Pesa and Airtel Money in Tanzania as well as MTN Money in Zambia, Rwanda and Uganda. 

Managing director of 3GDP Eran Feinstein said the platform can be used for multi-currency payments which allows cross-network payments.

“This solution enables airlines and their clients who make reservations to effectively use their mobile money wallets for transactions,” he said.

“It continues our mission as a company to give freedom to everyone to pay and be paid anywhere any time by any mode of payment.”

According to him, more than 10 airlines have signed up for the service in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda although the solution can be used by airlines in the five African countries.
