Air Mauritius has recently deployed the Wirecard payment platform for processing all its online payment transactions.

The Wirecard product enhances security of transactions with its comprehensive risk management solutions which are compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS).

The new payment gateway brings added benefits for customers to transact on the Air Mauritius website. In addition to Mastercard and Visa credit cards which were already accepted, online settlement with AMEX, Discover JCB, Diners, Maestro, VISA Electron and Carte Bleue as well as further debit cards are now supported .The new system also allows quotations for airline tickets (and other services) and payments to be effected in multiple currencies hence offering more flexibility to our customers.

The integration of the Fraud Prevention Suite, customized to suit the airline sector, ensures security of all payment processes in the long term. This provides the airline with optimum fraud detection, at the same time minimizing the risks of rejecting genuine transactions. Integration of all payment information from all distribution channels into the Fraud Prevention Suite guarantees a 360-degree view of all transactions, and hence ensuring ultimate security across all the direct sales points in the company.

André Viljoen, Acting CEO of Air Mauritius stated, “Ecommerce 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.”

Jörg Möller, Executive VP Travel & Transportation for Wirecard AG: “This venture once again demonstrates the efficiency and flexibility of our payment and fraud management platform.”
