EPIC and U.S. Bank Multi Service Aviation Announce Partnership To Expand EPIC Card Acceptance Internationally

New Orleans, LA – January14, 2014 -- EPIC® and U.S. Bank Multi Service Aviation have introduced the new EPIC/Multi Service Aviation cobrand card, which will provide enhanced functionality and global acceptance to EPIC cardholders via the Multi Service Aviation network, starting in Q1 2014.

Currently, the EPIC Card is accepted at hundreds of locations in the U.S. and Canada, including all EPIC® Fixed Base Operator (FBO) Network and UVair FBO Network? locations. Through the partnership with Multi Service Aviation, the EPIC Card will now be accepted at thousands of FBO locations globally that process within the Multi Service Aviation card network.

“Multi Service Aviation has a well-established platform for processing card transactions globally,” said U.S. Bank Payment Sales and Client Relationship Group Leader Jeff Rankin. “Adding the EPIC Card as a payment option at all of our FBO-serviced locations makes both the card and the platform even more convenient for customers.”

EPIC cardholders can expect to receive ongoing communications regarding the expanded access in the months leading up to the release, but it will be a seamless process for cardholders to begin using the EPIC Card globally. The EPIC Card will continue to offer the extensive functionality cardholders value -- such as online card reconciliation, convenient payment terms and ease of transaction -- and will continue to be fully managed by EPIC as the card issuer.

“EPIC is constantly enhancing our programs and services to excel as the preferred provider for thousands of aviation customers,” explained EPIC Chief Product Officer John Nelson. “With the expansion to global access for the EPIC Card, pilots can lighten the load in their card wallet and carry just the EPIC Card for all their FBO purchases around the world.”
