Air Europa, immersed in a process of continuous improvement in security to ensure comprehensive control in the protection of its customers' data, has received the PCI-DSS certification, the benchmark security standard in the payment card industry, which certifies that the treatment of confidential information handled is executed with the highest level of protection and security. 

This certification is an information security model for organizations that process credit cards of the main market brands and is oriented to the definition of controls for the protection of cardholder data and confidential authentication data.  

For Air Europa, obtaining this certificate is "the culmination of a multi-year project whose main objective was to ensure that all our customers can use their credit cards with the highest possible level of security," said Bernardo Botella, Sales Director of the Globalia air division.

This security model, which is granted by the PCI SSC (Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council), and which Air Europa will periodically validate before certified security evaluators, aims to reduce and prevent fraud in this area.

Air Europa, for whom information security is key to its commitment to customers, adds PCI-DSS certification to its own security programs and thus achieves maximum efficiency in data protection. 

In order to obtain this certification, the airline company successfully passed exhaustive processes, which ratify the fulfilment of all the requirements demanded, and carries out a complete and continuous training in privacy and security.
