Kenya’s national carrier Kenya Airways (KQ) has adopted a cashless mode of payment at its two major airports.
Both Moi International Airport (Mombasa) and the Kisumu International Airport (KIA) will start receiving payments via credit cards or M-Pesa effective June 1, 2022.
“The implementation of a cashless system helps to support the customer shift and preference to cashless transaction and will ease cash collection and reconciliation issues at the airports ensuring efficient services to customers,” said KQ in a statement.
Payments will now only be accepted through debit or credit cards and other online payment apps.
Guests can choose from alternative payment options, including Credit/Debit cards (Visa, MasterCard, AMEX, Union Pay) or M-pesa.
