Universal Verifone payment solution available to all SITA AirportConnect customers

Air transport IT provider SITA has partnered with digital payment specialist Verifone to develop a unique payment solution that integrates an airport’s shared IT infrastructure with Verifone’s handheld devices.

Stakeholders using SITA’s AirportConnect Common-Use Payment Service will now be able to accept secure payments on a single Verifone device installed at each touchpoint including desks, kiosks or bag-drop units.

Initially available for SITA AirportConnect workstations, the service will be rolled out to support SITA’s common-use kiosks and bag-drop stations over the coming months.

Barbara Dalibard, CEO, SITA, said, “For airlines, the ability to facilitate payments on shared IT infrastructure at the world’s airports is vital to provide passengers with an integrated air travel experience every step of the way.

“Our work with Verifone, to deliver this innovative payment solution, allows multiple merchants to use the same device in line with PCI security standards. It enables airlines, airports and other air transport industry stakeholders to accept secure payments in a common-use environment.”

Joe Mach, president of Verifone North America, said, “As a leading global innovator and trusted partner, businesses look to Verifone for the means to simplify their payments experience and build positive relationships with their customers.

“Working with SITA, a global IT leader in the airline industry, Verifone is bringing large-scale, reliable, secure payment touchpoints and convenience to traveling customers at airport counters and kiosks around the world. The agreement is a milestone in expanding our secure payments and future dynamic point-of-sale (POS) interaction in the transportation industry.”
