In order to meet the needs of their customers and better position itself in the aviation business, RwandAir, has enabled Maestro, Discover, Diners and JCB credit cards for online tickets payments.
The four payment methods are in addition to the existing SmartCash, VISA and Master cards. The airline’s Internet Booking Engine (IBE) also allows payment by Mpesa, the mobile-phone based money transfer service.
This is part of RwandAir’s IBE upgrade project that started earlier this year which includes the selection of Wirecard AG, one of Europe’s leading specialist for payment processing service, as RwandAir’s online ticket payment processing provider.
A mobile application and more mobile-based payments, are planned to be introduced with the aim to offer innovative and convenient services to our customers.
RwandAir is the national carrier of the Republic of Rwanda. With a fleet of 12 aircraft, it currently flies to 22 destinations across Africa, the Middle East, Europe and Asia including Mumbai, Harare, Lagos and London.
