Wirecard AG has taken over the acquiring customer portfolio from Lufthansa AirPlus Servicekarten GmbH

Wirecard AG has taken over the acquiring customer portfolio from Lufthansa AirPlus Servicekarten GmbH, Germany’s leading provider of payment and settlement solutions for business travel.
Until now, AirPlus has predominantly offered service agreements for Visa and MasterCard acquiring under the Acceptance brand. These agreements will be assigned to Wirecard during the first half year of 2015. This integration will require no extra efforts from the respective clients, which include international airlines.

Jörg Möller, EVP Travel & Transportation at Wirecard: “We look forward to serving the clients of AirPlus. In future, they will benefit from many additional services, such as our fraud prevention management solution, access to smart online tools and real-time statistics.”
