Airlines Reporting Corp. (ARC) has begun processing payments for Business Travel Group’s Business Class brand through the ARC Pay API, which was launched several months ago. The solution is embedded directly into Business Class’s online booking experience and gives customers a simplified, one-click payment option when booking air travel. Business Class is a platform that provides discounts on business and first class airfares.
Joseph Cavanagh, director of payment products for ARC, said the ARC Pay API is built to give travel sellers more flexibility and security when processing travel-related expenses while streamlining how their customers book travel. 
The ARC Pay API can be integrated into mobile, web-based and custom software applications. It embeds payment processing directly into the booking workflow, which streamlines ticket reconciliation and reporting for travel agencies within ARC’s core settlement infrastructure.
