Our story

We are proud to be born out of the first-hand experience

Hahn Air Lines GmbH launched an innovation lab to address the specific payment needs of the travel distribution faced by the company and later created FinMont GmbH as a separate company to focus on specific travel payment needs. One of the key impetuses for understanding the importance of payment orchestration came out in the aftermath of the Wirecard scandal, where the significant risks of being a merchant that relied on a single payment service provider were exposed.

The FinMont solution has been developed to address the market need for a payment orchestration platform that solves the specific needs of the travel industry.
