Lufthansa airline has introduced a new payment innovation tagged ‘Amadeus Airport Pay’ which will henceforth enable secure and simple payments at the check-in counter in Lagos, Abuja and Port Harcourt airports.
This new service, developed by Amadeus and Ingenico, will subsequently be available at more than 170 airports around the world.
According to the airline, the customers will be able to pay for ancillary services, such as excess baggage, with chip-cards (credit/debit cards), girocard payments and compatible digital wallets.
Speaking on the development, Lufthansa General Manager in Nigeria, Robin Sohdi declared “This direct-payment option will further improve the customer experience for our passengers in Abuja, Lagos and Port Harcourt.”
Additionally, airline staff are able to initiate compensation payments with these terminals, for instance in case a passenger voluntary steps back from an overbooked flight.
For Kai Schilb, Head of Payment at Lufthansa Group Hub Airlines; “To bring secure and seamless payment options to our passengers to ease their individual and seamless travel experience is a core objective for the Lufthansa Group. Amadeus Airport Pay enables our travelers to choose customized ancillary services for their flight while checking in or at the gate – securely and with a variety of payment options, and without the need for detours”.
