We’re creating a more connected travel industry, underpinned by sustainability and long-term investor relations.
When passengers arrive at check-in, they may want to purchase additional ancillary services. Now, they can pay for these on the spot.
As ground handlers, you are ideally placed to capture additional revenues from ancillary sales. By having a payment tool to hand, it is fast and simple to sell value-added services such as on-board Wi-Fi, lounge access or excess baggage. What’s more, you can collect payments from passengers for any of the airlines you serve.
Passengers don’t want to have to queue up again, somewhere else in the airport, to pay for extra airline services. Make it more convenient for travelers to settle payment directly using Amadeus Airport Pay for Ground Handlers. And because our solution is wireless, you can place agents wherever a payment service is required, for example at the boarding counters.
Customers want to know their card details are safe and secure when making a payment. Our wireless solution ticks all the boxes.
Amadeus Airport Pay for Ground Handlers is PCI-DSS compliant. The solution handles EMV chip and pin transactions as well as swipe and contactless, so passengers can pay for their services just as they would at any retail establishment. Point-to-point encryption reduces the risk of fraud associated with some other payment methods.
Our solution is cloud-hosted so we manage all upgrades and maintenance. This ensures you always have the latest product updates and connections to payment providers. In addition, the Ingenico payment device is encrypted to communicate securely across the airport mobile network, and does not require common use certifications. What’s more, the deployment is very easy as it does not require any installation or configuration on the payment device.
We have invested extensively in our Amadeus Payment Platform, building connections with over 70 major payment schemes and acquiring banks, as well as Apple Pay and Google Pay.
