U-MO is a mobile money service enabling users to make and receive payments, and conduct other financial transactions on their mobile phones.

This service enables users pay for their Aero flight tickets via their mobile phones.

According to Aero MD Akin George, “This new service is going to revolutionise how people purchase their airline tickets and what they expect from their airline.”

The new payment option aims to increase operational efficiency, save money for the airline and ultimately decongest the airline’s reservation offices.
