HONG KONG, Feb 22, 2017 – (ACN Newswire) – AsiaPay, a leading payment gateway service provider in Asia since 2000, has announced a collaboration with Peach Aviation, a well-known low-cost carrier (LCC) in Japan, to offer UnionPay and AliPay online payment acceptance service for its travelers from China and Asia.
A growing volume of passengers prefers to choose low-fare air tickets, especially those in China and Asia. Yet, the existing payment system of some airlines may not be updated to offer its customers with a comprehensive choice of convenient payment options in China and Asia to pay for travel expenses. AsiaPay provides secure, robust, one-stop multi-payment options for China and Asia passengers to book air tickets online and mobile in a speedy and convenient way so as to satisfy the need of express checkout nowadays.

Along with this collaboration, both parties work together to offer the best air tickets booking and payment experience to passengers in China and Asia, and meanwhile, effectively strengthen customer relationship, increase brand awareness and attract customers to enjoy traveling by using Peach Aviation's service.
Mr. Shigeo Omura, Commercial System representative of Peach Aviation, commented, "We have been looking for a payment service partner who has the extensive experiences and expert knowledge of multiple currency online payments. AsiaPay is exactly the company that fits the conditions and also a reliable partner for us. With AsiaPay's services, our passengers could buy our tickets with UnionPay and AliPay with confidence. Our goal is to promote the freedom to travel. We strongly believe collaboration with AsiaPay will help us to achieve our goal and meet the coming market needs."
