US Airways has renewed its agreement with GuestLogix, the leading global provider of onboard retail and payment technology solutions to airlines and the passenger travel industry.
The multi-year contract renewal, representing more than 50 million passenger-trips annually, will expand the relationship between US Airways and GuestLogix.
In addition to using GuestLogix’s core Onboard Retail Technology Platform for its buy-on-board program, US Airways will be upgrading its handheld point-of-sale devices, and implementing the company’s new Global Payment Services solution.
“GuestLogix is extremely proud to continue our relationship with US Airways,” said Patrick O’‘Neill, senior vice president, GuestLogix USA.
“Our commitment to improving the passenger experience, combined with our innovative onboard retailing technology solutions, has led to US Airways awarding us this new multi-year agreement.”
Under the terms of the new agreement, US Airways will deploy the company’s enhanced version of its onboard retail software and its next-generation XPDA-SP point-of-sale mobile devices, enabling EMV Contactless and NFC/mobile payment options.
The deployment will also integrate several unique services offered through GuestLogix’s Global Payment Services offering, as well as the option to deploy additional products and services onboard the aircraft via GuestLogix, including items such as destination-based entertainment and ground transportation ticketing as well as travel-relevant daily deals to their passengers.
