Launched in partnership with Cleartrip, the new flight booking service can be accessed via Amazon Pay section in the Amazon app or on the Amazon.in website
Buyers in India can already send money, pay bills, recharge for prepaid mobiles and order food, other than buying and selling products on Amazon’s app and website. Now, the e-commerce giant has gently added an additional feature to the long list of things people can do on Amazon: Domestic flight bookings.
Last month, Amazon launched peer-to-peer payments via Amazon Pay for Android users in India. The feature allows customers to make instant bank-to-bank transactions through the UPI platform on the localised version of the Amazon app. The service is built on the Indian government-backed UPI platform, which is regulated by the Reserve Bank of India.
Amazon’s entry into flight booking in India could also benefit Cleartrip in the country. Cleartrip competes with MakeMyTrip, Booking.com and Paytm.
