Wirecard, the global innovation leader for digital financial technology, is handling payments for online and travel agency bookings for Royal Air Maroc, Morocco’s national airline, and one of Africa’s leading and fastest growing airlines.
In addition to processing all online Visa, Mastercard and Maestro payments for Royal Air Maroc, Wirecard also handles credit card payments made via travel agency or airline agent ticket transaction settlement systems, such as ARC (Accounts Receivable Conversion) and IATA’s Billing and Settlement Plan (BSP), which serves more than 400 participating airlines.
“To reflect our global presence and reach, we are constantly broadening the scope of our service offerings, which includes ensuring a convenient and easy payment experience no matter how our passengers choose to book flights with us,” said Yassine Berrada, CFO at Royal Air Maroc.
“We are delighted to be cooperating with Wirecard in the area of digital payments.”
Eckart Reiche, Vice President Global Airline Sales at Wirecard, added: “The large part of air travel bookings are now paid for online and this trend is set to grow exponentially as payments become more digital.
“Not only is Morocco a top tourist destination, Casablanca, as the major hub for Royal Air Maroc, connects flights to North and South America, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and in the near future, Asia.
“We are proud to leverage on our expertise in global digital payments for Royal Air Maroc, and add another national airline to our already extensive client portfolio.”
