About

Changing customer preferences and distribution channels, innovative technologies and regulations are impacting the world of payments. While security and the cost of card payments present challenges today, instant bank transfers, electronic wallets and other innovations such as Blockchain are expected to further shape the future of payments. They will enable the creation of new payment solutions and the evolution of existing ones. What does this mean for airlines and other players in the aviation industry, and how can they best prepare for these changes? In this course you will explore various payment methods, trends and opportunities for airlines. You will learn to compare options and recommended strategies for payment acceptance and management, taking into account market changes and customer needs, distribution channel optimization, cost, risk and cash flow.
