airBaltic Introduces Payment Card Visa
Latvian airline airBaltic has introduced a Visa prepaid card, managed by Contis Financial Services Ltd., informed BC vice president of corporate communications at airBaltic Janis Vanags.
Michael Grimme, Chief Commercial Officer of airBaltic: “airBaltic is known for price leadership for flights to and from destinations in Western Europe, Scandinavia, Baltic region, the Middle East and the CIS. We consistently offer our lowest fares to travellers, who book their flights well in advance. The new airBaltic Payment Card will offer our customers better conditions for flights purchased at www.airBaltic.com and enable them to collect BalticMiles points for online and high-street shopping.”
It is a prepaid debit card, which means that money needs to be loaded onto the card account beforehand. Unlike some conventional credit cards, the airBaltic Payment Card is easy to obtain, with no credit checks and no bank account needed. The airBaltic Payment Card secures better conditions for purchasing flights at airBaltic.com and earns BalticMiles points when used for transactions online, over the telephone, in shops - anywhere that displays the Visa logo.
The card is available in two currencies – Latvian Lats or Euros. Customers apply for the card online at prepaidcard.airBaltic.com. airBaltic card holders also have the option of a secondary card, linked to their account, that can be given to partners, dependants or associates.
For summer 2013, airBaltic has introduced six new destinations – Prague (Czech Republic), Heviz-Balaton (Hungary), Olbia (Sardinia, Italy), Rijeka (Croatia), Larnaca (Cyprus), and Malta. airBaltic serves 60 destinations from its home base in Riga, Latvia. airBaltic offers convenient connections via North Hub Riga to its network spanning Europe, Scandinavia, Russia, CIS and the Middle East.
