Pay your Jetstar ticket through G-cash

It’s been a while since I last stalked browsed Jetstar’s website (which probably meant I now have a life), and I was surprised and quite pleased to see Globe’s G-cash logo.

For individuals on the move, or those without Internet access, GCash in one’s mobile phone provides fast, convenient and direct booking of Jetstar Asia tickets.

Ms Chong Phit Lian, Jetstar Asia’s Chief Executive Officer says, “Statistics show that Singapore is now attracting younger visitors as traveling has become more affordable. We want to bring greater convenience to our customers so what better way to reach out to this age group than through their mobile phones. We are glad that Globe Telecom is proactive and equipped with the technology to handle what we want to do.”

GXI President Rizza Maniego-Eala notes,”This groundbreaking joint venture with Jetstar Asia further expands the capabilities of the GCash mobile platform as it diversifies its ecosystem, increasing public access at the same time. Our partnership with Jetstar Asia brings Filipinos to greater heights and more places around the world.”

This is certainly good news for Filipino travelers who don’t have their own credit cards. Well, they can pay by cash at Jetstar’s office in Cubao, but with Gcash, they can still enjoy the convenience of booking online.

So how does it work? Jetstar tells us how:

After booking your Manila-Singapore flight online at www.jetstar.com/sg, GCash subscribers can now pay for their tickets instantly and wirelessly with a GCash-enabled Globe or TM SIM card.

To make your payment, please have the following information ready:
a) Jetstar’s Booking Reference Number (eg. W9ZSDN)
b) Total Payable Airfare (in Pesos, PHP)
c) Your 4-digit GCash Mobile Pin (MPIN)
d) Ensure you have sufficient credit inside your GCash wallet

Start payment by texting 4 key information and send to ‘2882’.

Just text BILLPAY <space><amount><space><GCash MPIN><space><3K><space><Jetstar booking reference number> and send to 2882.

After your text message to ‘2882’, you will receive an Instant Reply Message from GCash, informing you if your payment has been successfully sent or failed.
If the payment is successful, our reservation officer will update our records the next following day. An electronic itinerary will be emailed to you within 3 working days. Simply print out your e-itinerary and present it during check-in at the airport.
