New Payment Method for Air Tickets Successfully Demonstrated

Geneva – The International Air Transport Association (IATA) announced the successful completion of the first “IATA Pay” ticket purchase transaction in a live test environment. The transaction was conducted in partnership with ipagoo, a UK-based fintech company.

IATA Pay is an industry-supported initiative to develop a new payment option for consumers when purchasing a ticket directly from an airline website. It is made possible by the European Commission’s second Payment Services Directive (PSD2), and the UK’s Open Banking regulation. These regulations encourage use of so-called direct debit transactions in which payments are made from the customer’s bank account directly into the bank account of the merchant. This method offers an extremely high level of security to both user and recipient and can be instantaneous.

Vient de paraître : brochure compacte de Costa Croisières

Costa Croisières vient d’éditer une nouvelle brochure compacte pour le marché belge. Une douzaine de pages, il n’en faut pas plus pour résumer l’essentiel de l’offre de Costa.

Inspirer. Donner des idées. C’est l’objectif principal de cette brochure. Elle vous donne en quelques pages un aperçu des régions traversées par les croisières, avec itinéraires et prix.
Les personnes qui partent en croisière pour la première fois pensent souvent aux Caraïbes, aux îles grecques ou aux fjords norvégiens. Ou encore aux « États baltes », pour signifier en réalité la mer Baltique. Costa sait précisément ce que recherchent les voyageurs et a une réponse à leur donner.
Mais la compagnie de croisière propose également toute une série de voyages moins connus, mais tout aussi exotiques, comme les Seychelles, Madagascar, le Sri Lanka, les Maldives, etc.
