One of the most recent ones marks the November collaboration with US-based post-transaction fraud platform Chargebacks911, which had the goal of assisting airlines with handling chargeback disputes.

Earlier in that same month, the company announced that it had applied for an e-money licence looking to embed fintech and payment services within the travel industry and thus provide regulated services.
