Wirecard to digitize payment processes for airline company ANA

Tuesday 2 April 2019 10:40 CET | News

Wirecard has announced ANA, an Asian airline and Japan`s largest carrier, as a new client for digitalized payment processes.

The initial offer will include select European airports serviced by ANA, which is a Star Alliance member and partner of known European airlines. The new cash-free solution will allow ANA passengers in selected European airports to receive quick compensation for delayed or disrupted flights. Wirecard is providing ANA with a branded, digital card solution that can be loaded with the applicable amounts and distributed to passengers.

The compensation cards are a good solution for both the airline and affected ANA passengers: the cards can be quickly loaded by airline staff, saving time and cutting administrative costs. Passengers, who in the past would have received cash or limited-use vouchers, will receive instead digital cards, which can be used in ATMs, at the POS, and for online purchases.

The setup of the cards is powered by Wirecard’s application, in which features of the cards are customized for each customer. For example, the merchant can request that its cards be accepted at particular POS, that transaction fees should or should not be applied and can determine which countries they can be used in.
