RJ, PayPal offer online payment service
Amman, May 7, 2013
Royal Jordanian (RJ), the flag carrier of the kingdom, and PayPal, a global payment services company, have teamed up to offer a secure and convenient method of payment via the airline’s website.
The partnership means that all RJ customers flying to and from Jordan can opt to buy tickets online by using PayPal for payment. This service covers RJ customers purchasing their tickets in the Middle East, North Africa, Europe, Asia and North America.
RJ entered into a service agreement with PayPal to broaden Internet sales payment options, introducing the safe and easy-to-use PayPal service. This allows RJ customers to pay any way they prefer, including through credit cards, bank accounts, buyer credit or account balances, without having to share financial information.
Before using PayPal, one needs to register with the service and choose a method of payment through it, such as a credit or debit card.
Booking online can be done by accessing the rj.com site. PayPal will process the payment and the customer will then be taken back to rj.com for the booking confirmation and e-ticket issuance.
Royal Jordanian president and CEO Amer Hadidi said: “Our customers really value the convenience Royal Jordanian provides on its Internet booking engine. We look forward to enhancing our IBE services on the RJ website, therefore we partnered with PayPal as part of our strategy to offer the best ticketing experience for our customers, thus giving them more payment options.
“As e-commerce grows in the region, we want to be able to offer the best solutions, to make it even easier and safer to make purchases online, and this is the expertise PayPal provides.”
Managing director at PayPal Mena Elias Ghanem said: “Royal Jordanian is a premium airline committed to offering quality service to its customers throughout the travel process, from making a booking until getting on board the aircraft. PayPal is delighted to play its part in making this process even smoother and more secure.”
“The service allows people to send money without sharing financial information, with the flexibility to pay using their account balances, bank accounts, credit cards or promotional financing. With more than 128 million active accounts in 190 markets and 25 currencies around the world, PayPal enables global commerce,” Ghanem added. – TradeArabia News Service
