About Discover

Discover Card is the fourth largest credit card brand in the U.S., behind Visa, MasterCard and American Express, with nearly 44 million cardholders. The Discover Card is a credit card, issued primarily in the United States, introduced in 1985.

When launched, the Discover Card charged no annual fee and offered a higher-than-normal credit limit, features that were disruptive to the existing credit card industry. A subsequent innovation was "cash back bonuses" on purchases. Most cards with the Discover brand are issued by Discover Bank (formerly the Greenwood Trust Company).

Discover Card transactions are processed through the Discover Network payment network. In February 2006, the company announced that it would begin offering Discover Debit cards to banks, made possible by the Pulse payment system, which Discover acquired in 2005.

Many of our customers at Alternative Airlines like using Discover as a way to pay for flights because they enjoy the ease and comfort that Discover offers. That is why we are pleased to announce that we accept Discover on all of its websites. Discover allows customers to pay through their mobile, using their mobile number at a pace that is suitable and comfortable for them.
