“Enuygun is a household name when it comes to online flight booking, and we are excited to offer our digital payment acceptance services to yet another renowned online travel agency,” added Dündar Özdemir, managing director at Wirecard in Turkey. “Our cooperation with Enuygun offers great potential for us to further grow our footprint in the Turkish digital travel market. We are proud to leverage our many years of experience working with travel portals and provide fully digital financial services via our platform for millions of customers.”

Recently, Wirecard and UnionPay signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to form a global strategic partnership.

The agreement is part of UnionPay’s international expansion and Wirecard’s growth in China and with Chinese businesses.

As a result, a clear focus will be expanding the global acceptance of UnionPay as a digital payment method across all channels.

Furthermore, the partnership will launch a number of issuing projects, including corporate solutions such as payout products and SCP. Also, consumer-orientated products such as digital wallets for tourists will be developed.
