Emirates Airlines has joined over 17,500 leading global merchants to adopt the latest e-commerce security solution, Verified by Visa (VbV).The announcement comes as Visa is witnessing an all-time boom in Middle East cardholder e-payments. In 2003, the annual turnover of e-transactions by regional Visa cardholders rose 60 per cent over the previous year, proving that cardholders are increasingly discovering the convenience and security of paying with Visa on the Internet. The airline went live with VbV earlier this month, launching the service in the UAE and New Zealand. A full rollout in Australia, the United States and 16 other countries has now been completed.
