Royal Air Maroc, the national airline of Morocco, has partnered with German payments firm Wirecard to enable digital payments.

Wirecard will be responsible for processing the airline’s online Visa, Mastercard and Maestro payments.

At the same time, the German payments firm will manage credit card payments made through travel agency or airline agent ticket transaction settlement systems.

Wirecard vice president of global airline sales Eckart Reiche said: “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. In 2018 alone, air travel booked over the Internet generated a revenue of over EUR 360 million worldwide.

“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.”

Royal Air Maroc has 7.4 million passengers per year.
