Airtel and Ola have come together as a part of a strategic partnership which will integrate their respective services with each other. Airtel Payments Bank will now be one of the payment options while you pay for your Ola cab while Ola Money will now be one of the payment options when you do a recharge from MyAirel App or Airtel’s official website. The recharge might vary from a prepaid/postpaid connection or even DTH connection.
Further, Airtel retail points will now help people who are looking to book an Ola cab with the help of kiosks placed in these locations. While Ola’s massive driver partners can easily get their numbers recharged from these retail points.
Apart from this, this partnership will also have Airtel and Ola build content solutions for the customers of Ola Play. Airtel’s suite of entertainment offerings will be available on Ola Play while both partners will also work to offer a range of value-added services from Airtel’s stable to Ola customers over time.
Gopal Vittal, MD & CEO – Bharti Airtel said – “We are delighted to partner Ola to enable a seamless digital experience for customers. Both companies have strengths that complement each other and this offers massive scope to co-create exciting products and solutions for customers.”
On the other hand, Bhavish Aggarwal, CEO and Co-founder at Ola said – “This first-of-its-kind partnership brings a host of offerings from two massive ecosystems together. Airtel will integrate its offerings across payments, content, PoS networks, and more with Ola’s offerings for its large customer and partner base.”
