Google Wallet In Malaysia Allows Users To Add Boarding Passes From AirAsia, MAS
Author Avatar

With Google Wallet now officially live in Malaysia, users will not only be able to tap into an additional payment method, but also a safer and simpler way to access selected non-payment essentials. In the case of Malaysian users, they can access their flight boarding passes straight from their Android and Wear OS devices.

In its statement, Google said that users who have purchased flight tickets from airasia – and in the coming months, Malaysia Airlines (MAS) – will be able to add their boarding passes into their activated Google Wallet. With the passes added to the digital wallet, they can then be notified of any latest updates to their flight details, such as changes to their departure time and gate changes. This, in turn, allows for a more comfortable boarding experience at the airport.

Google further said that adding boarding passes to Google Wallet is a fairly straightforward process that can be completed with just a few taps. If you are buying a flight ticket from the airasia super app, there will be an option to “Add to Google Wallet” once you’re done with your purchase; tapping on the option will then create the digital version of the boarding pass in your Google Wallet – and that’s it!

As for data security, Google noted that users’ data will be protected with several layers of safeguards. Aside from the tokenisation feature – which is crucial for the protection of users’ payment card data – you can also set screen locks for extra security, as well utilise the “Find My Device” function to lock your device, set new passwords, and clear personal information from your phones remotely.

During the reveal of Google Wallet at its annual developer conference back in May 2022, Google highlighted that aside from boarding passes, the digital wallet will also allow users to store other non-payment essentials such as loyalty cards, digital IDs and keys, and vaccination cards. At the present launch, these other functionalities have yet to be enabled for Malaysian users, but they are certainly something to look forward to.

For now, though, most Google Wallet users will likely be more eager to explore the convenient contactless payment feature of the digital wallet. If you’re not yet aware, Google Wallet currently supports Visa and Mastercard credit and debit cards from four banks in Malaysia, namely CIMB Bank, Hong Leong Bank, HSBC Bank, and Public Bank – with some banks offering launch campaigns to celebrate the occasion.
