What is UATP?
UATP is the low cost payment network privately owned by the world's airlines. UATP streamlines billing and provides travel managers with detailed activity reports that track a traveler's carrier, destination and travel itinerary.
With UATP, airlines can completely avoid credit card fees if their corporate clients purchase tickets on the airline that issued their UATP card.
Additionally, airlines that issue UATP accounts earn revenue when their card is used to purchase travel on another carrier. No other credit card program offers this benefit. And, UATP's robust data is the industry leader. No other card brand can offer Level III data for every ticket regardless of which airline the ticket is purchased and what method of purchase (e.g. via a travel agency, online booking site or direct purchase at the airline).
Over 250 airlines and thousands of travel agencies accept UATP as a low-cost form of payment for air travel, service fees, management fees and net fares. Not only does this make UATP an impressive network for corporate clients who use UATP as their preferred form of payment but those entities that accept UATP save money because of UATP's low merchant service charges.
