JetBlue will make begin accepting Apple Pay on transcontinental flights between JFK in New York and airports in San Francisco and Los Angeles. he company will add support on additional routes in March, and cover its entire schedule by June.

Other contactless payment systems like Google Wallet are on the roadmap too, but no timeline has been announced as yet.

Since its launch in September, Apple Pay has been adopted by 750 banks and credit unions and dozens of retailers across the US.
