UnionPay International (UPI) has partnered with Spring Airlines, declaring that the airline’s official website now accepts UnionPay cards, a timely update for the Spring Festival travel peak. This development ensures travelers from Southeast Asia, Japan, South Korea, and Hong Kong can use their UnionPay cards for secure, swift, and convenient payments. The service commenced on January 31, 2024.

This partnership facilitates transactions in various currencies, such as the Japanese yen, US dollar, Hong Kong dollar, Korean won, Thai baht, New Taiwan dollar, and Singapore dollar. Now, Spring Airlines’ website supports UnionPay cards for online bookings, benefiting more than 230 million cardholders across 81 countries and regions with easier access to the airline’s offerings.

Spring Airlines stands out as China’s pioneering low-cost carrier funded entirely by private investment and the first to be initiated by a travel agency. As of the end of 2022, the airline boasts a fleet of 116 Airbus A320 series aircraft and serves key commercial and tourist destinations across China, Southeast, and Northeast Asia. Operating over 210 routes, Spring Airlines annually caters to 20 million passengers.

Mr. Jia Li, General Manager of Financial Payment for Spring Airlines, said, ‘the current implementation of the visa exemption policy between China with Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand is favorable for the development of China’s inbound and outbound tourism industry. As a result, the search volume for Southeast Asia flights on Spring Airlines’ official website, ch.com, has increased by over 10% compared to the previous period. By joining hands with UnionPay International, Spring Airlines aims to provide domestic and international travelers with more payment options, as well as a safer and more efficient payment experience. Moving forward, Spring Airlines and UnionPay International will continue leveraging their respective strengths to explore potential collaborations in various scenarios, further facilitating convenient payment solutions for inbound and outbound travelers.’

More than 180 local wallets have been introduced across 35 countries and regions, offering a wide array of UnionPay payment solutions including cards, QR codes, contactless, and online payments. These options have significantly enhanced convenience for everyday and international transactions. UnionPay International (UPI) has become a preferred payment method for international travelers coming to China and has secured its position as the top card brand in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area and throughout Southeast Asia. Spring Airlines customers can now benefit from UnionPay’s expansive global network, ensuring a seamless and genuine payment experience for foreign visitors. UPI is committed to further simplifying, securing, and enhancing travel through ongoing innovation and collaboration.
