Ethiopian Airlines launches digital wallet payments

Digital payments specialist Paysafe has agreed a deal with Ethiopian Airlines to offer its customers the ability to pay through digital wallets.

The agreement means that Ethiopian Airlines’ customers can use Skrill and Neteller digital wallets to book outbound flights from Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Lebanon, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Oman through the airline’s website.

Under the arrangement, which has been enabled by the pan-African Flo Cash payments network, is backed by chargeback protection and customer support in 16 languages, including Arabic.

Paysafe Digital Wallets CEO Lorenzo Pellegrino said: “Mobile money is reshaping the payments landscape across emerging markets.

“Digital wallet options such as Skill and Netteller mean that millions of customers now have access to the online economy, which is a compelling opportunity for businesses in the region.

“We’re delighted to enable businesses such as Ethiopian Airlines to extend their suite of simple, fast and secure payments options, which is crucial to driving sales through the web.”
