Portland, Oregon, APEX Expo, September XX, 2015.

 

GMX YouTransactor, the software publisher and hardware manufacturer of mobile payment solutions for transport operators, and Lufthansa Systems GmbH & Co. KG, one of the world’s leading providers of IT services for the airline industry, announce today at APEX Expo the joint demonstration of their solutions.

Airline companies are offering to their passengers a great diversity of in-flight entertainment (IFE) services. Besides enriching passengers’ travel experience, BoardConnect also makes cabin crew’s live easier and increases airline business options. During a flight, airlines can communicate with their passengers while generating additional revenues at the same time.

To demonstrate how much payment of BoardConnect IFE services can be facilitated, Lufthansa Systems has selected the SK100 mobile payment solution from GMX YouTransactor. The solution empowers cabin crew’s capabilities to offer user-friendly payment options (contactless NFC, mag stripe, chip & pin and cash) via the use of a BoardConnect WiFi-connected compact handheld device.

BoardConnect from Lufthansa Systems is a wireless in-flight entertainment platform which enables airlines to configure an individualized IFE system adapted to their content and design requirements.

SK100 from YouTransactor is a mobile payment solution for professional smartphones designed to answer ID and mTicketing validation, control, payment and fine requirements
