Secure Microcontrollers from STMicroelectronics Enable Travel and Purchasing Ecosystem with Airline Loyalty Card
The Qantas Cash-Card is highly flexible as a travel tool, boasting 9 virtual wallets ideally suited to accommodating as many as 9 different currencies for a multi-country trip. Converting and transferring funds among the 9 currencies can be done instantly.The card uses a unique 2 sub-system design to ensure the security of the user’s data and currency: the EMV (EuroPay, MasterCard, Visa) runs the cash-card function and the LOYALTY kernel controls the check-in and partner functions. The approach required an enhanced EMV-level certification to ensure and confirm that the card applet maintained card security and EMV operation.
“Together with ABnote, the ST security and control offering to Qantas is very much in synch with the objectives of IATA 2020 vision of streamlining and mastering the flow of people, baggage, goods, and information across the whole air-travel infrastructure,” said Francois Guibert, Executive Vice President & President, Greater China & South Asia Region, STMicroelectronics. “ST’s technology enhances the travelers’ every touch-point in the whole experience.”
