The following fields should be filled in when you choose to pay by bank card:
• Card number;
• Card validity;
• Card holder’s name;
The transaction failure may be due to the following reasons:
• The purchaser’s issuing bank does not support the applied payment processing technology;
• The card balance is insufficient to pay for the Ticket;
• The purchaser’s issuing bank prohibits online payments.
If the payment was successfully completed but you received no subsequent access to the paid Ticket, please contact the Aeroexpress Customer Support Service via the hotline at +7 (800) 700 3377 or using the e-Ticketing Customer Support feedback form on the Website.Holders of cards from the Visa, MasterCard, MIR and Union Pay international payment systems that support contactless payment technologies, such as PayPass, payWave, and QuickPass, can pay the Aeroexpress fare directly at Turnstiles. The aforesaid cards have a corresponding payWave, PayPass or QuickPass sign on them.
To pay your fare and pass through the Turnstile, you only need to place the following on the reader located at the top of the Turnstile and marked with a yellow circle:
• a bank card, with contactless payment technology;
• a mobile device (smartphone) with an activated ApplePay or AndroidPay option (a bank card shall be added);
• a Troika transport card.
An amount equal to one standard fare will be withdrawn from your bank account.
If your card does not support cryptographic CDA verification and/or payment transactions using contactless technology without requiring PIN ENTRY, you will not be able to carry out a payment transaction at the Turnstile (contact your issuing bank to learn more about your bank card options).
To avoid any issues with the payment at the Turnstiles when you are at the airport, we recommend checking the outstanding balance on the card you plan to pay with in advance.
PayPass Mag Stripe bank cards are not accepted as a payment option.
Please note that, in the case you purchase several Tickets, the price of one Ticket at the selected fare and the total amount of your Order will be specified on the Ticket.
If you select a Ticket version for mobile devices, make sure that it is displayed correctly on your phone. To do so:
• Make sure that the internet connection you are using operates without failure;
• Follow the link in the SMS you received, showing your proof of payment.
The opened page must display the electronic ticket with the barcode. Tickets received on mobile phones shall not be printed out. In the case that the barcode is not displayed, contact the Aeroexpress Customer Support Service via the hotline at +7 (800) 700 3377 or using the e-Ticketing Customer Support feedback form.
For Passengers’ convenience, purchased Tickets can be sent again to the email or another mobile phone number. Tickets without barcodes will not be checked.
To pass through the Turnstile, you can use either a paper-printed Ticket or the Ticket shown on the screen of your mobile device. To pass through the Turnstile, put the Ticket’s barcode onto the reader and wait until the Turnstile opens. When the barcode is being read, do not confirm any Apple Pay or Google Pay payments as this results in the withdrawal of funds from your bank card for passing through the Turnstile, without using the previously purchased Ticket.
