This means airlines can decide to offer PayPal to travelers through their websites across global markets with transaction references, helping to ease reconciliation. Thanks to Amadeus’ Agent Pay innovation travelers can also choose to pay with PayPal at the call center or even in face-to-face environments, with a secure link to make payment provided by the agent.
