This payment method is being used for the markets in Mexico, Peru, Austria, Germany and The Netherlands
MADRID, March 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Air Europa, the airline company in the Globalia group, has included SafetyPay as a method of payment that allows a transaction to be made in local currency, directly and safely, in cash or by bank transfer, without the user having to provide their bank information to a third party when purchasing an airline ticket through a Call Center.
Since the end of January this method of payment has been used in the Call Center for the destinations of Mexico and Peru, and recently Austria, Germany and The Netherlands have also been incorporated.
The manager of Air Europa's Call Center, María Jesús del Hoyo, said, "we believe the alliance with SafetyPay will make us more competitive in the markets where we operate, expanding payment alternatives and facilitating sales to the public, especially in the Americas, where a large segment of the population does not have a card or a bank account."
Gabriel Sinopoli, Chief Executive Officer of Europa said, "this is an excellent alternative in Latin America, where the number of people with bank accounts is lower than 40%. With our payment tool, Air Europa substantially improves its positioning in international markets."
Asunción connects Madrid non-stop to Caracas, Lima, Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Salvador de Bahía, São Paulo, Montevideo, Asunción and Buenos Aires. The company also has direct flights to Santo Domingo, Havana, New York, Miami, Puerto Rico, Cancún and Punta Cana. This June, the new Madrid-Bogotá route will be added to these destinations, and in December it will also start flying to Guayaquil, Ecuador. The airline company in the Globalia group also operates in important destinations in Europe, North Africa, and Asia.
SafetyPay is a real-time global payment solution with more than 100 banks and points of qualified collection worldwide. The solution is available in the United States, Canada, and several countries in Europe and Latin America.
