Leading Brazilian airline selects Worldpay for international flight bookings


Brazil’s largest airline by number of cities served, Azul, has selected Worldpay as its exclusive global payments provider, allowing the company to deliver more international flight bookings.

Azul selected Worldpay to match its global expansion in North America and Europe. The airline is using Worldpay’s online payments and treasury services in all markets, and is seeing the most significant boosts from consumers in Portugal and the United States. The partnership allowed Worldpay to act as a single point of contact for payments across all countries.

Having accumulated over 25 years of industry expertise, Worldpay is the world’s leading airline acquirer, and works with more than 80 of the biggest names in the industry. By working with one partner, Azul has been able to avoid the complication and cost of dealing with multiple payment processors across many markets as it continues to expand. With Worldpay, Azul has benefitted from lower website integration costs and faster market entry.

Marcelo Bento, Director of Alliances and Azul Viagens at Azul said: “Working alongside Worldpay has given us a huge competitive edge in the market, as seen by the number of countries we’ve moved into. By giving ourselves the ability to save time, money and resources by operating through a single provider, we hope to demonstrate Azul’s global expansion, supplying frequent and affordable air services to underserved markets throughout Brazil and beyond.”

Juan D’Antiochia, General Manager, Latin America, Global eCom at Worldpay said: “By partnering with Worldpay, the process of expanding abroad is simpler, making it quicker and easier for airlines to set up and gain access to consumers in new markets. Having one payment provider means that airlines gain access to a consistent service across all markets, and aggregated sales data for each market they’re operating in, without needing to deal with multiple vendors. In doing so this allows airlines to save time and money and ultimately improve revenues, as we have seen reflected with Azul.”
