"By partnering with UATP, we are able to gain speed-to-market as we will be able to integrate airlines with SafetyPay and begin offering customers our e-payment option quickly," said Manuel Montero, CEO, SafetyPay.  "We responded to the global need from customers to be able to pay directly from their bank account, in local currency.  With this new partnership, we all win."

SafetyPay is a global, secure Internet payment solution that enables online banking customers to make online purchases from merchants worldwide and pay directly through their local bank account in their local currency. SafetyPay was developed in response to the growing need for a safe and secure online payment method, which also could be used internationally.

"Giving consumers their desired form of payment has helped in this economy," said Ralph Kaiser, president and CEO of UATP. "Demand remains for airline travel, but in the last several years there has been an obvious increase for choice in forms of payment, outside of high-cost consumer cards.  SafetyPay has tapped into that market and offer a secure method that consumers desire; a smart business decision enabling SafetyPay to grow organically, while expanding options for the airlines and consumers alike."
