SkyBus launches WeChat payment service for Chinese tourists

We are excited to announce that SkyBus has now launched our ‘WeChat Pay’ service allowing Chinese tourists to travel to and from Auckland Airport quickly and easily.

WeChat Pay is the payment feature integrated into WeChat, China’s most popular social media messaging service, which allows users to pay for goods and services quickly and easily using their mobile phones.

Launching the new payment service at Auckland Airport, our Director, Michael Sewards said, “Auckland is becoming a more and more popular destination with Chinese tourists, and so we wanted to make Chinese visitors feel at home when they land in Auckland and travel to the CBD with SkyBus.”

“SkyBus is all about making journeys more seamless for travellers, so we’re delighted to launch WeChat Pay for our Chinese customers so that they can get on board SkyBus quickly and easily, and pay safely,” Mr Sewards added.

WeChat Pay is linked to Chinese bank accounts, meaning that tourists visiting Auckland don’t need to worry about withdrawing cash or exchanging money, and can simply use WeChat Pay when travelling to or from Auckland Airport.

Chinese customers can pay for their SkyBus tickets through WeChat Pay at our ticket booths located kerbside at Auckland Airport and at our city shop located at 396 Queen Street.
