Charter booking platform Stratajet today introduced the option for customers to use Apple Pay to pay for flights. Apple Pay is a digital wallet that offers secure checkout for iPhones and iPads using Touch ID.

According to the UK-based company, the Stratajet app allows users to search for and book flights based on their current location and presents users with an array of charter options based on the most suitable airports for a particular journey. Customers are shown real-time pricing for these flights that they can lock into when they book online. The system can incorporate available empty legs, which brings down the cost of flights.

“We have seen a huge growth in demand for the use of our app and we know that most of that demand is coming from people who have iOS mobiles,” said Stratajet founder and CEO Jonny Nicol. “Offering Apple Pay to our customers adds to the many other ways Stratajet is making private jet travel accessible to a wider market.”
