Arik Air accepts international credit cards on www.arikair.com
Arik Air has introduced the option to pay with international credit cards (VISA, MasterCard) for tickets purchased on the website: www.arikair.com
International credit card payment will be available anywhere in the world. The credit card transactions will be processed in the local currencies of US dollars (USD), British Pounds (GBP) or South African Rand (ZAR). When accepting credit card payments, Arik Air will take advantage of the additional security measures such as Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode systems as well as an advanced fraud prevention system made available by the Payment Service Provider. This will ensure the transactions are safe for Arik Air and Arik’s online customers.
Kevin Steele, Senior VP Commercial Arik Air, commented on the introduction of the new payment system:
“The introduction of the credit card option will now make payment easier for our customers as well as expedite bookings without having to go to a sales office, travel agent or airport ticketing office as has been the practice up until now. The whole process is simpler and more convenient to the passenger and we have taken every step to ensure that it is a secure system.
“Whilst this is a major step for Arik as well as our regular customers, we are still working on a solution to implement a local Nigerian Naira credit card payment solution. We will hopefully be able to offer this service to all passengers very soon.”
