Starting from October 4, Aeroexpress accepts contactless payments through Apple Pay. As of now, passengers can pay for tickets at the turnstiles or the carrier’s ticket offices. The price of a ticket purchased from the ticket office is RUB 470. Travellers obtain a 10% discount when paying for travel at the turnstile.
“Aeroexpress is the first transport company in Russia to have already started accepting contactless Apple Pay payments,” says Rustam Akiniazov, Chief Commercial Officer of Aeroexpress. “We believe that the service will be in demand as several passengers have already used it on the very first day it became available.”
The contactless Apple Pay payment service was officially launched in Russia on Tuesday, October 4. It is available to owners of iPhone SE, 6 or newer models, as well as Apple Watch, provided that they have a MasterCard issued by Sberbank.
Passengers can purchase Aeroexpress tickets from ticket offices, ticket vending machines, and at the turnstiles using the Pay@Gate service, Troika card, bank cards supporting MasterCard PayPass or Visa payWave, and also at www.aeroexpress.ru or via the mobile app.
