Canada Jetlines has tapped Elavon, a unit of U.S. Bancorp, to support payment processing.
Elavon’s omnichannel payment solutions will enable Jetlines passengers to make payments in-person, online, or on mobile.
The vendor’s platform will also address security concerns through advanced risk management tools, fraud detection solutions, and managed chargeback services.
Data breaches are now becoming more sophisticated and advanced. Therefore firms must ensure that they have tight security to cope with the influx of data.
Elavon head of airline acquiring Brett Turner said: “We’ve been processing payments for the airline industry since 1989, serving global and regional carriers of all sizes.
“Adding Jetlines to our portfolio of airline customers deepens our commitment to the Canadian market.”
Elavon tends to more than 1.3 million customers in the US, Europe, Canada, Mexico, and Puerto Rico.
Jetlines CFO Carlo Valente said: “Elavon is consistently rated among the top global payment providers and offers secure payments solutions that comply with industry standards.
“With data breaches becoming more and more common today, security of customer payments is crucial while also reducing the cost of payment card industry (PCI) data compliance.
“Elavon meets these needs with its award-winning, international processing platform and global payment solutions.”
Jetlines intends to run flights across Canada. The airline also plans to operate non-stop flights from Canada to the US, Mexico as well as the Caribbean.
