US Bank Multi Service Aviation has begun issuing Multi Service Aviation Card to companies that use private aircraft and the pilots that fly them in Australia.
The aviation fuel card, used to pay for fuel, maintenance and other aviation services, is accepted by 7,500 aviation service providers in more than 190 countries.
In Australia, the cards will be issued through Elavon Financial Services, part of US Bancorp, parent company of US Bank Multi Service Aviation. With the addition of Australia, Multi Service Aviation now issues cards in 33 countries, with plans to expand to additional countries later this year.
The Australian sales will be managed from South Africa by Martin Hankins, president of MH Aviation Services, Multi Service Aviation’s regional representative.
US Bank Multi Service Aviation claimed that the aviation fuel card provides its users with customized billing, free online account maintenance and savings on fuel. In addition, the card delivers value to merchants through account flexibility, free business promotion, competitive card processing, and fast transaction authorization and settlement.
Mr Hankins said: “The Multi Service Aviation network helps pilots and companies around the world pay for aviation-related services, including fuel, flight planning, aircraft handling, trip support, weather tracking, catering and more.
“Issuing the Multi Service Aviation Card to companies in Australia greatly expands the scope of our business and brings convenience to a new group of clients in this part of the world.”
