Air China will issue UATP payment cards and accept all UATP accounts as a form of payment, now that the Chinese national flag carrier has joined the airline-owned UATP network.

UATP in May partnered with Citcon, a provider of merchant acquiring and other services related to the North American and European acceptance of ubiquitous China-based mobile payment systems Alipay, WeChat Pay and China UnionPay. Under that alliance, customers will be able to make payments via those services to UATP member airlines.
