We don’t think about the tools anymore, we think about what experience we want to deliver to our users."

eGate and JetBlue’s buy-on-board app takes off with Xamarin.

JetBlue turned to eGate Solutions and Xamarin to move to iOS and Android from specialized devices, which weren’t available on all flights and often lost credit card transactions during syncing. JetBlue’s flight attendants use the app to process purchases and track inflight inventory, resulting in smooth transactions and better service.

  • Thanks to the app, JetBlue was the first airline to accept Apple Pay in flight
  • Real-time payment processing with Apple Pay reduces lost and fraudulent transactions
  • Sleek user interface is designed for demanding environments, like turbulence
