BUSINESS or frequent travelers who are Visa customers can sign up with the new “Visa Airport Companion” program where they’ll be offered a “complete airport experience” via a digitally integrated platform.

Cardholders can enjoy a number of benefits, privileges and discounts on a range of airport amenities and services including lounges, restaurants, spas and airport limousines.

Through the app, travelers can make in-app purchases and enjoy smart recommendations, as well as request for push notifications and card verification.

TS Anil, senior vice president and head of products for Asia-Pacific at Visa, said, “Besides airport lounges, F&B establishments are most frequented across all traveller segments, followed by shopping.”

“About 7.5 billion people are expected to pass through an airport in 2019 with expected sales of about $60 billion at airports.”

Visa also announced a partnership with DragonPass, which offers its members access to over 850 airport lounges worldwide.

Visa Infinite cardholders are entitled to complimentary membership until May 31, 2017. On top of that, they can enjoy a 20 percent discount at over 200 dining outlets at selected Asia-Pacific airports, as well as discounts to purchase single lounge passes.
