Travelport’s Fitzpatrick departs to ‘pursue other opportunities’

    Travelport VP Global Payment Solutions, Alex Fitzpatrick, is leaving the company to pursue other opportunities. She has participated in a number of CAPA events as speaker, panellist and moderator. In a recent interview (Electronics Payments International) on digital and frictionless payments for travel applications, airline fraud management, PSD2 and Blockchain, she explained strong customer authentication will ultimately force many more transactions down the digital path. “PSD2 is going to have a huge influence on the different forms of payment. It is taking off in numerous countries, and obviously different countries develop different standards, but anything that protects the consumer and reduces fraud is a good thing. It is going to be a global trend,” she said.
