The Silicon Valley-based payment giant has been chosen by Gatwick Airport to modernise its parking payments.
Stripe has teamed up with London Gatwick Airport to overhaul its payments system.
London Gatwick is the United Kingdom’s second busiest airport serving around 40 million visitors each year and the eighth busiest airport in Europe.
It is also one of the UK's biggest car parking operations with nearly 40,000 car parking spaces including short and long-term, premium parking with fast terminal access, and valet parking and storage areas.
“Over the last half-decade, modernisation has moved from nice to have to be mission critical,” said Eileen O’Mara, chief revenue officer at Stripe.
“The travel and transportation industry is using technology to enhance travel experiences at every step of the customer journey. It’s exciting to see London Gatwick genuinely improving travel, beginning at the moment a passenger books their parking.”
Stripe will help Gatwick with a complete modernisation of its parking payments system including introducing mobile wallet payments.
“A passenger's trip begins before they leave their home, and for many people that means booking a parking space as part of their journey,” Jonathan Pollard, chief commercial officer at London Gatwick said.
“With Stripe, we give our passengers the ability to seamlessly prebook their parking. Booking and paying for a parking space at London Gatwick has never been easier, and we’re incredibly proud to improve millions of people’s journeys as they travel through our car parks and airport.”
