Pilots no longer need a wallet full of charge-card options when traveling domestically or internationally. EPIC and U.S. Bank 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 Steve McCullough, EPIC senior VP of BD and Strategy. “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 customers.”
