Airlines Reporting Corporation (ARC) has announced a new deal with Alipay that will allow U.S.-based travel agents to sell airline tickets to Chinese travelers.
The agreement with Alipay, a mobile and online payment platform based in China with over 500 million users, will allow airlines to accept Alipay as a form of payment for tickets sold through the travel agency channel. ARC’s new offering to agencies is made possible by its partnership with Universal Air Travel Plan.
ARC said that it anticipates that its airline and agency customers will desire to accept Alipay in the very near future.
