Urban Airship adds first marketing platform support for the new Android Pay tickets and passes
The digital wallet-based items, now used in the millions on the iPhone, were just announced this week by Google.
iPhone users have been having all the fun with digital wallet-based tickets and airplane boarding passes — until Tuesday of this week.
That’s when Google announced at its I/O developer conference in Mountain View, California, that it is now adding them to its Google Pay mobile digital wallet, complementing the existing wallet-based coupons and loyalty cards.
At the same time, Urban Airship announced the first support for these Android tickets and passes on a mobile marketing platform. Its Digital Growth Platform, connected via APIs to back-end systems for airlines or other brands, currently provides active content for more than 250 million iPhone-using air travelers across more than a dozen airlines.
