Proflight, MTN partner in mobile ticketing pact
PROFLIGHT Zambia has partnered with MTN Zambia to offer customers an additional payment solution when buying tickets using the mobile money services.
The service enables customers with an MTN mobile money account to pay for their Proflight tickets at any Proflight office or from their MTN smart phone.
Proflight director of government and industry affairs Philip Lemba said customers making bookings by phone or online can also select the ‘Pay Later’ option and confirm the transaction by paying using the MTN service through their phone or at any MTN paypoints.
Captain Lemba said in a statement on Wednesday that the airline introduced the service in a bid to make its services more accessible and safer for customers across Zambia.
“Our relevance in the industry will only be ensured by delivering value-added services to our customers. This collaboration with MTN will allow Proflight to provide customers with a more convenient, safer and faster way of making payments.
“This will save our customers time and money as the whole ticket-procuring process can be done from the comfort of their homes or work place 24 hours daily,” he said.
Capt Lemba said Proflight intends to make the MTN mobile money a standard payment option on its online and mobile booking platform for customers using a computer or smart phone to book their tickets.
He said travellers can also look forward to various exclusive promotions and discounts that Proflight will be launching in collaboration with the mobile phone service provider.
