HCMC – The national flag carrier, Vietnam Airlines (VNA), has deployed payments through scanned QR codes, using national payment services Napas and VNPay, on its website as well as at its ticket agents nationwide.

A representative of VNA said that the carrier had applied the payment service since the end of June. QR payments, which are widely used at financial institutions, are projected to meet demand for fast, convenient and confidential payments without using cash or bank cards.

Customers can make payments for flight tickets at any time and anywhere using only their smartphones. The new function simplifies payment procedures for customers and enhances confidentiality, as all of the account information is encrypted and customers are not required to provide any information related to bank cards.

In launching QR payments, VNA will keep pace with worldwide carriers in the digital age.

Earlier, at the start of June, customers who are members of VNA’s Golden Lotus program, were given the choice to use domestic bank cards to make payments on the website for tickets booked over the switchboard at 19001100 and 19001800. They could also pay through internet banking, ATMs or at transaction counters under the management of Techcombank and Vietcombank.

Deploying advanced technologies allows customers to carry out transactions on VNA’s website and e-commerce apps more conveniently.
