KUALA LUMPUR: AirAsia Bhd has teamed up with The Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) to offer a multi-currency pricing e-platform system. This will allow the carrier’s customers to get instant ticket pricing in the currency of their choice when making a purchase.
AirAsia said in a statement yesterday it was the first Asian low-cost carrier to launch multi-current pricing using RBS FXmicropay. The solution is an automated advanced pricing tool that supports about 60 currencies.
It can handle up to 3,000 transactions per second. “The enhanced online sales platform will take away the uncertainty of exchange rates fluctuation.
“We want out guests to have no surprises when they receive their credit card statements at the end of the month,” group chief executive officer Datuk Seri Tony Fernandes said.
AirAsia will launch the service by offering sales in US dollar, Singapore dollar, Hong Kong dollar, pound and Australian dollar. It will later accommodate other currencies.
