American Airlines Credit Union Launches Chip-Enabled Technology On Visa® Credit Cards

FORT WORTH, Texas – American Airlines Federal Credit Union first led credit unions with the introduction of a chip-enabled prepaid travel card, and is now issuing chip-enabled Visa credit cards for consumer and business member-owners.

Beginning Sept. 1, all new consumer and business credit card applications will be issued a chip-enabled credit card. Existing credit card holders can also request a replacement chip-enabled version of their existing Visa Platinum, Platinum Rewards or Business Platinum Rewards credit card, and the Credit Union will waive card replacement fees through Dec. 31, 2014.

American Airlines employees and other eligible personnel will now benefit from even greater global acceptance of their Credit Union Visa credit card when traveling abroad for business or pleasure. Chip technology for card-based transactions is the technology standard for most of the world. The U.S. is also in the process of migrating to this card-payment technology.

Each card contains an encrypted microchip on the front of the card. When you ‘dip’ your card by inserting the chip first, instead of swiping your card using the magnetic stripe at merchants who have chip-enabled terminals, the chip encryption makes your transaction more secure and can help prevent unauthorized use of your card details. And you’ll also benefit from improved fraud monitoring when you dip your card at these terminal, too.

“Offering the most travel-friendly suite of payment products for our airline-based membership is an important strategic focus for us,” says Christopher Danvers, the Vice President of Payments for American Airlines Credit Union. “Offering chip-enabled Visa credit cards for our member-owners when they are traveling overseas for business or pleasure is only one of the many travel-friendly payment initiatives we’re committed to providing.”
