The platform will be available to airlines as an installed or SaaS solution, the company said in a statement.

The platform will help CellPoint Mobile’s airline customers to deploy new payment methods, currencies, and channels in minutes or days, not weeks or months, and to get more value from their relationships with Payment Service Providers (PSPs).

From a single access point, airlines can manage, add, delete and update payment data easily and quickly, and process passenger payments and transactions seamlessly and securely for passengers, CellPoint Mobile said.

CellPoint Mobile CEO Kristian Gjerding said: “CellPoint Mobile’s Converged Payment Gateway solution pre-integrates PSPs so that airlines can significantly shorten the time-to-market and reduce the costs of launching and managing new payment methods and PSPs to meet their passengers’ growing needs.

“With the ability to manage payment methods and PSPs in a matter of minutes, CellPoint Mobile’s Converged Payment Gateway solution enables airlines to turn the payment ecosystem into an asset that supports increased sales and greater margins.

“Our new payment platform enables airlines to process transactions in a very cost-effective manner, through a central hub that sits within their existing payments infrastructure,” Gjerding claimed.
