Click Travel to trial new IATA settlement system

Buying Business Travel | September 19, 2019

Click Travel and British Airways have been selected to trial the International Air Transport Association’s new ‘Settlement with Orders’ solution, which is designed to simplify the management of payments.The new B2B settlement system is an extension to and uses IATA’s  and One Order standards, which provide a single reference number for each booking, linking all related transactions.Historically, any changes were given a new, separate ticket number, which then had to be manually cross-referenced.According to Click Travel, Settlement with Orders takes this concept further by allowing third parties to build and develop automated payment processes using the same single reference number.

IDnow brings their expertise on the secure decentralized digital identity to support the airline industry for the journey to customer-centricity. – Kat R.

From lowering the fraud risk for airlines, to creating a more seamless and low-touch experience for passengers and offering a GDPR compliant solution for storing and sharing of biometric pictures for airports and other players – Digital identity is the key. We are excited and proud to have been selected by IATA to work together and to partner with some of the most prestigious airlines of the world to shape the future of air travel", -Michael A.
