CellPoint Mobile, AVA Airways to provide payment solutions

CellPoint  Mobile, a provider of technology solutions for the worldwide airline and passenger transportation sectors, has announced that it will provide payment processing capabilities for AVA Airways, the company said.

Velocity, CellPoint Mobile´s PCI-DSS compliant payment platform, will allow AVA Airways to accept card-based payments for fares, ticket pre-sales, and ancillary purchases.

As a converged payment gateway, Velocity connects with AVA Airways´ existing passenger services system (PSS), and provides the startup regional carrier with optimized hosted payment pages integrated seamlessly into the booking flow.

With CellPoint Mobile´s Velocity platform in place, AVA Airways will be able to swiftly ramp up debit and credit card-based transactions, including the ability to take payment for ticket pre-sales ahead of the airline´s official launch plan for late 2018. And with hosted payment pages optimized for both desktop/laptop and mobile device form factors, Velocity will help AVA support mobile bookings that are crucial to the LATAM and Caribbean markets.

AVA Airways is based in the Dominican Republic and will offer service to several countries in the Caribbean, Latin America, North America and Europe. AVA is expected to begin flying its first routes in late 2018.
