VALUE ADDED SERVICESBy BiztechAfrica - July 26, 2012, 12:37 p.m.
Airtel Kenya and Kenya Airport Parking Services (KAPS) have partnered on payment for parking at airports.
A new three-year partnership between the two will allow Airtel customers to pay for their parking tickets using Airtel Money.
KAPS is a solution provider of car parking, access control and revenue management systems, with parking systems installed at municipalities, major facilities, parking lots and shopping malls around Kenya.
Airtel Kenya Managing Director Shivan Bhargava said: “There will be different phases of the evolution of this service. We’ve seen a lot of jams on the Nairobi roads and we’ve all experienced long queues at the mall as well so we want to completely decongest them.”
The service is already available at Capital Center, Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, Yaya Center, Junction, Sarit Center and Westgate.
Customers will also be able to pay for other ticketing services which are available on their online ticket portal at www.kapstickets.com.
