ChinaDotMan Launches English Website for Discounted Air Tickets for China

BEIJING, Feb. 28 /Xinhua-PRNewswire/ — ChinaDotMan, a pioneer and market leader in the sale of electronic airline tickets in China, today announced the launch of its English language ticketing Web site, http://ticket.9588.com/ , to sell fully discounted domestic Chinese air tickets to foreigners. Using the site, customers are able for the first time to use international credit cards to purchase domestic Chinese air tickets online.

”We aim to serve foreign travelers to China with real-time booking of Chinese air tickets at the lowest discounted prices,” said Mark Atkeson, ChinaDotMan’s chief operating officer. ”Currently, no other agent offers full discounts and the degree of payments flexibility that is available through our Web site.”

ChinaDotMan enables customers to save on their ticket purchases while making all reservations and payments online. International credit card payments are processed by Vesta Corporation, ChinaDotMan’s parent company in the US. Vesta Corporation, a virtual commerce company that serves as a major payment processor for US wireless and long distance carriers, manages all security and bank processing for credit card transactions on the Web site. ”Vesta has been processing credit card transactions in a card-not-present environment for over 10 years,” said Doug Fieldhouse, CEO of Vesta Corporation. ”In that time, we’ve seen increasing customer confidence in electronic payments security.”

ChinaDotMan’s mobile reservation and ticketing services cover SMS text messaging, WAP browsing and downloading of a KJAVA ticketing application.
