Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL), operator of BLR (Kempegowda International Airport, Bengaluru),has launched the platform in partnership with Kotak Mahindra Bank and Phi Commerce.

The one-stop payment solution, designed specifically for the airport, will enable a secure, scalable, and unified payment experience across the campus.

It will facilitate transactions across the domestic terminal, international terminal, airport city, concert arena, airport hotels, retail, recreation, dining, and entertainment (RDE) destination, airport parking, cargo, and BIAL subsidiaries.
