UATP, the airline-owned payment network, and Uber for Business announced a strategic partnership in which UATP will be integrated into Uber Wallet, enabling travelers to use UATP accounts for rides with Uber as well as orders through Uber Eats. These features will be available in the coming weeks. Susan Anderson, global head of Uber for Business, said the companies “look forward to providing a frictionless customer journey from the booking process all the way through to payment and reconciliation, while creating an intuitive way for companies to improve their operations.” Ralph Kaiser, CEO of UATP, said that “with the added pressures in today’s business travel it is imperative to place as much ease on the traveler as possible. UATP acceptance for Uber for Business does that and fulfills a strategic vision for both companies.” UATP account holders will now have access to Uber’s on-demand network and have ride and meal information supplied on statements. Uber is the first rideshare platform company to connect with the UATP network.
