United Airlines Holdings Inc. said it would introduce PayPal Holdings Inc. QR codes as an inflight payment option.
The airline said that starting next month, United customers on some flights can show a flight attendant the PayPal QR Code in the PayPal app and use it to buy snacks, drinks and other inflight purchases while onboard.
PayPal QR Codes can be used on select flights departing from Chicago O' Hare International Airport in November and, before the end of the year, would extend to all flights across the entire network where contactless payment is available, the company said.
PayPal shares were up 1.4% in afternoon trading, to $263.73.
