"This partnership grants UATP's member airlines with additional mobile payment capabilities which are cost effective and traveler-centric, allowing over one billion Chinese consumers to pay for airline purchases in their preferred way; and marketing capabilities that enable merchants to deliver a higher level of personalized service to increase sales and passenger loyalty." said Wei Jiang, President and COO at CITCON. "Having a compelling vision for payments becomes a key aspect of an airline's broader digitization strategy, ultimately transforming the airline from being flight-centric and transactional in nature, towards becoming a truly traveler-centric service provider."

The technology company offers a variety of Asian wallet brands and is the only fully licensed U.S.-based acquirer of Alipay, WeChat Pay and China UnionPay.

"In today's unprecedented industry environment, UATP is pleased to be able to continue to build partnerships, such as our CITCON relationship, that will provide airlines with a deepening payment strategy that will be necessary once more flyers are present. We are meeting customer demand, both airlines and the flyers, by being able to offer these forms of payment."
