Etihad Airlines is now offering an option to “fly now, pay later.” The concept is possible with the help of payment provider PayFort, giving passengers up to five years to pay off those flights.
Justin Warby, the Etihad Airways vice president for digital strategy and innovation released a statement about the move and who it might appeal to.
“We understand travel can be a significant expense, especially for families and those on a tight budget. This new initiative is a great way for people to book and enjoy their travel without having to worry about paying in one large sum.”
Currently, the option is only available to travelers who live within the UAE, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt. But the popularity of it is likely to expand if the move draws an increase in customers.
