Google partners with Airbuy
November 20, 2020
Google is creating an international entry into airport retail through a tie-up with an e-commerce begin-up which could present corporations in six Indian airports.
Under the tie-up, Google’s virtual wallet platform Google Pay will onboard the startup Airbuy’s Spot platform as a micro app on which passengers can order from F&B shops and ebook lounges on the pick airports.
The setup works like some different ‘only food’ supply marketplace. Passengers get a list of airport F&B retailers and their menus to pick out from on the app. Payments will probably be finished thru Google Pay. They get an alert whilst their order is prepared and decide it up from the opening. They can also e-book their time in airport lounges as they look forward to his or her flights.
The six airports embody Mumbai, Bengaluru, Kolkata, Chennai, Goa and Nagpur, stated Ellen Choi, product head at Airbuy. Delhi will in all likelihood be included quickly. Google-Airbuy plans to roll out the product globally. After India, it plans to launch in South East Asian markets beginning with Singapore.
