Introduction to AIRDAT Credits
AIRDAT Credits are a payment method designed to make the booking and management of training simpler and faster than ever before.
When making purchases within our systems at airports we bill on behalf of, you will see the option to make a payment via ‘credits’.
This feature allows companies via our systems to request a value of credits that suits their operation. An invoice is created which can be passed to the accounts department and, once paid, these will be applied to the company account for use against future purchases.
This article will cover requesting and using credits for Passport and VISA. To request credits for use in Onboard please this article.
