Passengers flying the U.A.E.’s flag carrier can now buy tickets with the touch of a finger thanks to the incorporation of Apple Pay into the Emirates iPhone and iPad app. The high-security digital wallet uses Apple’s fingerprint identity sensor to encrypt card information, replacing having to punch in all those numbers with a single touch. Although Apple Pay is currently only available on devices in the U.S. and U.K., it’s soon to expand to more markets, and Emirates’ service will follow.
