Spreading its wings to success again

At the same time, Worldline’s experience in acquiring for airlines and its knowledge in the travel industry will help the German airline better mitigate risks and challenges and prepare for the future. In addition, it will design and implement the necessary payments infrastructure so that Lufthansa can meet its goals and start growing again, after the entire industry was severely hit by the global COVID-19 pandemic, lockdowns, and an upcoming world recession.

The partnership implies that Worldline will be globally processing payments-related services for Lufthansa and its sister operations, SWISS, Austrian Airlines and Edelweiss, ensuring that all members of the group can benefit from continued investment in innovations. 

Moreover, all group members will have access to airline-specific services such as Billing and Settlement Plans (BSPs), and Accounts Receivable Conversion (ARC). Worldline will also put at the Group’s disposal its TravelHub solution, a single scalable connection that provides access to more than 150 payment methods and currencies, tokenization, multi-acquiring, and high-quality fraud prevention solutions, all through a single reporting and settlement channel.
