In the March 2010 print edition of Airline Business, which has just gone to press, we ran a piece talking about airline strategies to cut credit card transaction costs.
As part of this article, we looked at alternative payment options, such as PayPal. The piece went live on the Airlines Channel earlier this week.
“Transavia.com has become the first airline company in France to integrate PayPal as a payment method,” says the carrier. “The passenger now has the choice between credit card payment, UATP or PayPal.”
PayPal France chief executive Laurent Le Moal adds: “For PayPal, the airline sector is a development priority in 2010.”
Credit card providers listen up.
