Ingenico Group the global leader in seamless payment, today announced that it has signed a partnership agreement with Chinese carrier Xiamen Airlines, to provide the online payments infrastructure for the company. As one of Asia’s fastest-growing airlines, Xiamen Airlines’ customers come from many different markets, which has led to a complex payments infrastructure. To sustain growth and simplify their payment operations, the company wanted to improve online payments acceptance with complied global Payment Service Providers like Ingenico. This will enable the carrier to increase the number of local payment methods and currencies it accepts, and help optimize the customer experience when purchasing airline tickets online. Ingenico’s full-service model with its large portfolio of cards and alternative payment methods, extensive network of local acquirers, and strong regional expertise all contributed to Xiamen Airlines’ decision.

To that end, Ingenico provides Xiamen Airlines with full-service payment processing and value-added services, as well as connections to a series of local acquirers, to drive improved acceptance rates.
