FAQs about our settlement account

The Air China AirPlus Company Account is a company travel account which your company can use to centrally invoice airline tickets, other travel related expenses. Also known as a UATP card or Air Travel Card.

With a central and automatic compilation of all travel costs, not only are accounting processes optimized, but descriptive billing data such as cost center and employee number are also disclosed. So you always have an eye on where costs occur and you can develop targeted strategies for cutting costs.

A central settlement account like Air China AirPlus Company Account is generally worthwhile with a transaction volume of at least 15,000 EUR p.a. Starting at this amount, transparency of travel costs pays off.

The card number is primarily used as a payment system for your (online) travel agencies. The business travelers in your company can simultaneously use the number. One of the biggest advantages of our central settlement account is the transparent collective invoice. Instead of many individual receipts, you receive a single invoice on which all travel expenditures are summarized at a glance.

You can not only invoice airline flights with the Air China AirPlus Company Account, but also rail tickets, rental cars and hotel bookings. If your travel agency is an AirPlus Merchant, you can also invoice all travel agency services using the Company Account.

If a corporation has several subsidiaries, of course every subsidiary can have its own Air China AirPlus Company Account. Each individual Company Account can be organized differently according to descriptive billing data. In smaller businesses with only one travel agency, it isn’t necessary, because even with just one card, the AirPlus invoice provides a very detailed overview of incurred travel costs, which of course upon request can then be further sorted according to descriptive billing data.
