Amadeus Airport Pay

Payment solution

Airlines are increasing the number of services for which passengers have to pay at the airport when doing their check-in: additional baggage, overweight of baggage, class upgrades… However, the current payment tools used at check-in counters are outdated and do not remove the risk of fraud. Alternatively, some airlines are using their own chip & pin devices that cannot be used by other airlines or ground handlers using the same workstation. The consequence is that passengers have to walk to the far end of the airport to pay for excess luggage or a flight upgrade after a long check-in and bag-drop process.
This inconvenient set-up is now changing with Amadeus Airport Pay. It is the first airport payment solution that allows a payment device to be used by multiple companies – true common use arrives to payment terminals!  Amadeus Airport Pay is integrated in the Amadeus Airport Common Use Service platform making the most of the benefits that cloud-based solutions bring.
Amadeus Airport Pay provides airports, ground handlers and airlines a secure, low-risk payment method and eases the deployment and maintenance of the solution thanks to its cloud architecture. Increased convenience for your passengers and shorter check-in processes are guaranteed.
