Porter is using Worldline’s TravelHub solution, which gives travel companies global end-to-end payment processing capabilities and regional access to markets across Asia, Europe, Latin America, and North America. The solution includes WeChat Pay, a built-in mobile wallet from WeChat. Purchases can be made using a QR code, in mobile browsers or in the WeChat app, which has more than 1 billion users.

“Our TravelHub solution saves airlines time and resources by connecting main Global Distribution Systems (GDS)’s to WeChat Pay and more than 150 payment methods globally,” said Virginia Cicchini, Sales Director Airlines & Travel, Americas at Worldline Digital Commerce. “This allows Porter Airlines to make the process of payment the most convenient for travellers in North America while increasing the airlines’ conversion and revenue”.
