Dynamic collaboration simplifies business aviation transactions
SALEM, Ore. & MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep. 2, 2014--
Pilots no longer need a wallet full of charge-card options when
traveling domestically or internationally. EPIC® and U.S.
Bank today announced the release of the enhanced EPIC Card℠, cobranded
with the U.S. Bank Multi Service Aviation Network-- the first card
issued by a fuel supplier to provide global acceptance via U.S. Bank’s
exclusive, aviation-specific network.
The EPIC Card can now be presented at thousands of fixed-base operator
(FBO) locations globally that process through the U.S. Bank Multi
Service Aviation Network. For EPIC cardholders, this means all card
transactions will appear on one statement each month for
streamlined reconciliation. A mobile app and a dedicated website provide
online settlement, tracking and account-specific pricing.
“For maximum convenience, and to lighten the weight of a pilot’s wallet,
EPIC cardholders can utilize the iGo EPIC℠ app to transact with a
digital card and access account-specific pricing for Preferred EPIC Card
FBO locations,” explains EPIC Senior Vice President of Business
Development and Strategy Steve McCullough. “Expanding the EPIC Card’s
acceptance through the U.S. Bank Multi Service Aviation Network is the
latest in our ongoing focus on product development and enhancements. We
look forward to offering current customers the expanded functionality
and to welcoming new EPIC Cardholders.”
This month, all existing EPIC cardholders will receive a black EPIC Card
with silver metallic EPIC and Multi Service Aviation logos. All the
benefits cardholders have valued in the EPIC Card will continue with the
addition of broader acceptance.
“EPIC has tapped into the power of our well-established platform for
processing card transactions,” said U.S. Bank Payment Sales and Client
Relationship Executive Jeff Rankin. “Adding the EPIC Card as a payment
option at all of our FBO-serviced locations makes both the EPIC Card and
the U.S. Bank Multi Service Aviation Network even more convenient for
