  • Wirecard will handle payment processing for the largest low-cost carrier of Central and Eastern Europe Wizz Air
  • Wizz Air is the first low-cost carrier to benefit from Wirecard’s flexible omnichannel services via Navitaire’s platform that enables a seamless booking experience

Wirecard, the global innovation leader for digital financial technology, is expanding its long-standing collaboration with Wizz Air, the largest low-cost carrier of Central and Eastern Europe. From now on, Wirecard will be offering payment processing services in addition to acquiring services via the Navitaire, an Amadeus company, IT platform. With this, Wizz Air is the first low-cost carrier to benefit from Wirecard’s flexible omnichannel services via Navitaire’s platform that enables a seamless booking experience. Thanks to the extension of the strategic agreements, Wirecard is strengthening its position in the field of low-cost airlines starting with Wizz Air as the first joint customer.

For consumers, low-cost carriers (LCC) have become a popular alternative to traditional scheduled airlines over the last two decades. LCC has been the fastest growing market in the European aviation segment. From 2007 to 2016, low-cost flights grew by 61%, from 5,200 flights per day to around 8,400 flights.

Over the past 14 years, Wizz Air has become the largest low cost carrier in Central and Eastern Europe. With a total of more than 180 million passengers to date, the listed airline increased its passenger volume by 20% in the past 12 months. Wizz Air currently offers more than 600 routes to 44 countries in Europe and beyond. With the help of its ever-growing route network, Wizz Air is democratizing air travel by offering low fares paired with an excellent on-board experience.

Eckart Reiche, VP Sales Airlines at Wirecard, said: “Low-cost carriers have a great growth potential. Therefore, we will keep expanding our position in this segment. We are proud to continuously expand our long-standing agreement with Wizz Air to support them with our expertise in the field of digital payments.”

Andràs Sebők, Head of Fleet Acquisition and Corporate Finance at Wizz Air, said: “After two years of successful cooperation, we are glad to extend our collaboration with Wirecard through Navitaire relying on their long-term expertise in the field of digital financial technology in the airline industry. Our aim is to provide our customers with a high-tech checkout experience continuously fulfilling the needs of our growing digital target groups.”

Excitech, the UK leader in technology and services for the construction sector, has been awarded a 7-year framework agreement to lead a consortium comprising GroupBC and Autodesk technologies to deliver Heathrow Airport Limited’s chosen Common Data Environment (CDE) solution.

The CDE is at the heart of Heathrow’s Information Management strategy.  It will be its primary common information repository and allow for specific controls to be put in place to share information in a controlled manner with suppliers and across Heathrow Departments. It will provide world-class information and asset management in line with emerging industry-standards, ensuring the efficient whole-life management of Heathrow’s critical assets.

David Hughes, Excitech’s managing director said, “Having worked on the Terminal 5 construction project we are excited to be involved in this latest strategic project at Heathrow.  The Autodesk and GroupBC technologies being deployed are market-leading and will enable Heathrow to trust the data they hold and have the confidence to make decisions based on ‘one version of the truth.”

The project is already underway and is expected to be complete by December 2020.  It will see the deployment of Autodesk’s BIM 360 visualisation and design tools integrated and underpinned with management and governance from GroupBC’s Enterprise CDE.

Jo Ellman Brown, PMO Director at Heathrow said, “We are aiming to be the first airport operator in the world who can leverage value from our digital assets, allowing our people to work in a safe environment, design and plan in a collaborative way, and operate a fully integrated asset system.  With a long-established relationship with Excitech, we’re delighted they were the successful bidder on this project.  We anticipate that the solution they have proposed will significantly improve the management of our critical assets.”

As well as enabling Heathrow to have accurate and up to date information readily available in the CDE, the new solution will result in fewer surveys and reduced costs as a result of earlier and greater collaboration across all parties.  In addition, maintenance costs will reduce through better, earlier clash detection and more accurate maintenance information being readily available.
