Worldline, a European market leader in payment and transaction services, has introduced its acquiring services for the Chinese tourists’ favourite payment brands at Budapest Airport.

This is the first Alipay acceptance location in Hungary and the second collaboration of Worldline with Heinemann Duty Free after the launch of Alipay at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol in January 2018, according to the official press release. Budapest is one of the ‘must-see’ destinations in tours around central Europe and, in recent years, has seen a significant increase in tourists from China. In 2018, some 250.000 Chinese tourists visited the Hungarian capital, with a growth rate of more than 11%.

As a central acquiring partner for both Alipay and UnionPay, Worldline is enabling merchants at airports in Amsterdam Schiphol, Basel Mulhouse, Bremen, Brussels, Burgas, Copenhagen, Frankfurt, Geneva, Helsinki, London Heathrow, Luxembourg, Malmoe, Malta, Martinique, Munich, Stockholm Arlanda, Toulouse, Varna, Vienna and Zurich to offer their Chinese traveling customers the same payment methods they normally use at home.
