Payment method when AIRDAT manages the billing process
Effective July 2020
For Airports where AIRDAT manages the billing process, AIRDAT has improved the payment process to speed up and simplify the process for everyone.
AIRDAT has always used Stripe, our chosen PCI compliant online payment provider trusted by global banks and stores, for card payments.
From July 2020, payment for transactions made in Passport, Onboard and VISA will be taken at the time of purchase via purchasing, credit or debit card using an advanced Stripe integration.
Payments on account will no longer be accepted.
Frequently asked questions
Who does this impact?
Airports at which AIRDAT provide billing services. This includes London Gatwick Airport, Luton Airport, Bristol Airport, Exeter Airport, Manchester Airport and London Heathrow.
Will I get a receipt?
Yes, at the time of purchase on-screen, via an email and also in the 'History' and 'Purchases' areas of Passport and Onboard systems.
Can I save my card details?
The team are working on an update that will allow you to store card details for future purchases.
Are other payment methods still available?
Yes. A credit on account can be applied. There is a minimum value of £5k per credit applied, which can be used against future purchases of training, licences and vehicle permits billed by AIRDAT. We will shortly be providing a system update that will automate this process and allow you to track/spend these credits within our system. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org to request an invoice for this credit.
I don't have a credit card - can you help?
Yes. We have negotiated an offer with Equals Spend. Equals provide purchasing cards and the associated approval software. When applying, if you mention AIRDAT, they will waive the setup fees, and provide 3 cards to your business free of charge too - meaning it is completely free to get started. You can head here to register.
What do I need to do?
If you are already able to make payment for services via card there is nothing you need to do. If you cannot, now is the time to make arrangements if you wish to continue to make purchases using AIRDAT's system.
What about billing for non-AIRDAT systems?
Where AIRDAT managing billing for items outside of AIRDATs systems (for example, Permit to Work), use of BACS payments and invoicing on account will continue.
