English Agenda & Presentations

The airline industry and travel companies have small profit margins. However, payments and fraud represent great opportunities for cost savings, as well as new sources of revenue in the multi-channel, international and cross-border markets in which they operate. The 6th "Airline & Travel Payments Summit Latin America" (ATPS) addressed these issues, challenges and opportunites, as well as how companies respond to them in innovative new ways.
