Wirecard has signed an agreement with the Hungary-based low-cost airline Wizz Air to manage its payment services in the field of card acceptance (acquiring).
Irrespective of customers’ location, users can book their flight online at wizzair.com, using Visa, MasterCard or Maestro.
In order to make the payment process more convenient, Wirecard has agreed to support payment settlement in about 20 currencies.
Wizz Air head of corporate finance and fleet acquisition Andras Sebok said: “Wizz Air is focused on every controllable cost item of this business. For us, service and innovation are a priority and we work hard to ensure that our passengers have a smooth and hassle free experience throughout all stages of their journey.
“One of the crucial elements is to give our customers the opportunity to pay in their preferred currency. Wirecard’s first-class global coverage and an optimum technical structure made the selection of our partner an easy choice for us.”
Wirecard head of sales airlines Eckart Reiche said: “The partnership with Wizz Air for Central and Eastern Europe is really positive news for us. We will not only now be able to further expand our global portfolio, but also to demonstrate the efficacy of our payment platform.”
