CellPoint Digital has partnered with French airline La Compagnie. CellPoint Digital will help the carrier optimise its payment processes, lower its transaction costs and provide more flexible payment options to its passengers.

Specialising in routes between New York from Paris, Milan and Nice, La Compagnie leverages fuel-efficient aircraft, a point-to-point route structure and a passenger experience tailored to the leisure traveller to deliver what its customers want: business class service to Europe at an attractive price point.  

As La Compagnie looks to expand its fleet and route network in 2025, it’s taking another step in its customer-centric journey by embracing Payment Orchestration in partnership with CellPoint Digital.

Kristian Gjerding, CEO of CellPoint Digital, said: “The attention around La Compagnie is well-deserved – it’s an airline that truly understands what its customers want and need and is agile enough to pivot its operations to meet that demand. By utilising our Payment Orchestration Platform, La Compagnie stays true to this principle; it can enable more varied payment options for passengers, streamline processes and improve efficiencies, and expand its unique business model to new markets.”

Expanding routes and payment capabilities to meet passenger demand

As La Compagnie grows, moving beyond a single acquirer strategy and routing its transactions more optimally to reduce costs becomes a competitive advantage. By using CellPoint Digital’s complete Payment Orchestration Platform, one of the first European airlines to implement it fully–the airline can quickly and seamlessly integrate new acquirers, digital wallets, and many other alternative payment methods (APMs) like open banking and PayPal to better serve passengers.

Partnering with CellPoint Digital makes La Compagnie one of the first global business class-only airlines to have a fully developed payment strategy that includes payment orchestration.
