Air Mauritius has assigned electronic payments solutions provider Wirecard to process all its online payment transactions.

A joint statement said the new payment gateway aims to bring added benefits for customers to transact on the Air Mauritius website.

Apart from MasterCard and Visa-branded credit cards, customers will now be able to pay with American Express, Discover JCB, Diners, Maestro, Visa Electron and Carte Bleue debit cards.

The initiative will also allow quotations for airline tickets and payments in multiple currencies.

André Viljoen, acting CEO of Air Mauritius said:

“e-commerce is high on our agenda as we continue to offer more flexibility and more choice to our customers. We are witnessing a growing number of visits on our website and online purchases are also on the rise.

“We have taken a series of measures to improve our e-commerce capabilities. The Wirecard payment gateway allows our customers to transact online in a totally secure environment while enhancing our service offering with new payment channels.”

The announcement comes after Wirecard’s acquisition of the UK-based Newcastle Building Society’s prepaid card issuing business.
