Paysafe takes flight with Ethiopian Airlines

Enabling businesses in emerging markets to drive sales online

LONDON, November 29, 2017 – Ethiopian Airlines, one of the largest airlines in Africa, has partnered with Paysafe, a global payments provider, to offer customers the option of paying via Skrill and NETELLER digital wallets.  

Ethiopian Airlines (Ethiopian) customers can now use their Skrill and NETELLER digital wallets to book outbound flights from Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Lebanon, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Oman via the airline’s website, backed by full chargeback protection and access to customer support in 16 languages, including Arabic.  

The partnership between Paysafe and Ethiopian Airlines has been enabled by FloCash Limited, a Pan African payments network that helps partners scale their business and reach the region’s millions of unbanked customers via the use of converging payment technologies.

Paysafe Digital Wallets CEO, Lorenzo Pellegrino said: “Mobile money is reshaping the payments landscape across emerging markets. Digital wallet options such as Skill and NETELLER mean that millions of customers now have access to the online economy, which is a compelling opportunity for businesses in the region. We’re delighted to enable businesses such as Ethiopian Airlines to extend their suite of simple, fast and secure payments options, which is crucial to driving sales through the web.”

“Paysafe is committed to levelling the playing field by empowering both the unbanked, and those who prefer to use cash rather than credit cards, with the ability to participate in the e-economy.”

Available in 200 countries and 18 languages and with over 100 payment options and 40 currencies, Paysafe’s digital wallets, Skrill and NETELLER, provide convenient and simple payment solutions globally. Consumers can upload, withdraw and store funds all through the Paysafe ecosystem.
