Wizz Air forms payments partnership with Worldline
By Gloria Methri
European airline Wizz Air has announced its partnership with France-based payment services provider Worldline. The deal will see Worldline deploy its payment services solution to meet Wizz Air’s requirements, as it has for several multi-faceted airlines in the sector.
Wizz Air will benefit from Worldline’s TravelHub solution, a single scalable connection providing access to over 150 payment methods and currencies, multi-acquiring, tokenisation, and a range of fraud prevention services, all through one reporting and settlement channel.
TravelHub will support Wizz Air’s expansion and provide it access to a wide range of acquirers and payment services, including local payment methods. Worldline plans to help Wizz Air to offset and mitigate the risks and challenges that have emerged in recent years across the sector. The deal will see Worldline processing across Europe for Wizz Air.
Damien Cramer, Global Head of Travel & Airlines, Digital Commerce at Worldline, said, “We are proud that an organisation as ambitious as Wizz Air has selected Worldline to be their partner of choice in meeting their payment requirements. Our secure and cutting-edge TravelHub payment solution, in conjunction with our highly experienced team of payment experts, will help them achieve the success to which they aspire.”
Tamas Szegedi, Senior Treasury Back Office Manager, Wizz Air, added, “We are looking forward to our future cooperation with Worldline, to continue building our robust and flexible payment infrastructure, ultimately supporting a seamless payment processing and customer experience for our customers, and supporting payment and finance processes. Our goal is to enable the best possible payment infrastructure and options with the most resilient and effective features and providers, which fits well with our strategy to improve efficiency in all possible areas, including payment processing.”
