SkyEurope Airlines Offers New Channel for Payment

SkyEurope recently announced, as mentioned here, that they will start accepting payment in the form of prepaid cards. They have authorized consumers to use the pre-paid paysafecard for online purchases. This card is in use in 10 European countries, and uses a PIN code, instead of asking consumers to type in their entire credit or debit card number. Steven Greenway, of SkyEurope stated that:

“Our goal is to offer variety of fast and safe payment channels to our clients. Some passengers do not have access to debit or credit cards that can be used for electronic payments or they simply do not want to send their card number over the internet. We believe that by introducing the possibility to pay through paysafecard we will provide access to a greater spectrum of customer segments and provide more choice by providing a payment method that avoids paying additional credit card fees.”

Michael Müller, CEO of paysafecard went on to say that

“We are excited to announce our first co-operation with an airline company. SkyEurope is once more a true pioneer, when it comes to best-in-class customer service and safe e-commerce.”
