PAX announces Virgin Australia deal

Payment terminal provider PAX Global Technology has supplied payment devices to Virgin Australia, for rollout on all flights. Deployment is via a partnership between PAX, Omnevo, Linkly and Sektor.

PAX Technology Australia chief executive officer Nigel Lovell said the terminals provided Virgin with the benefits of Android technology, bringing together, for the first time, inflight payments and catering logistics on the one device. Lovell said a new era of innovative payments technology is emerging, with Android devices offering an array of merchant and consumer benefits as opposed to the more traditional offering from the banks.

“The payments market is shifting and it’s largely merchant-led. Merchants now want to choose their own software, their own device and then their acquirer with an emphasis on the consumer experience. The Android SmartPOS market is well positioned to dominate in the coming years,” Lovell said.

In partnership with DataMesh, PAX Technology Australia has also supplied terminals for Sydney’s My Fast Ferry/Manly Fast Ferry.
