Alternative Airlines’ Customers In the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia Can Now Book Flights Today and Pay Later with Postpay
Alternative Airlines and Postpay have partnered up to bring flexible payments to travellers in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Saudi Arabia. Customers can search and book flights with any of the 600+ airlines that Alternative Airlines tickets and spread the cost with Postpay’s interest-free pay in 3 instalment option.
Sam Argyle, Managing Director at Alternative Airlines: “We’re pleased to announce our new partnership with Postpay. At Alternative Airlines, we’re on a mission to bring flexible ways to pay to customers around the world. So we’re very excited to expand our payment options in the UAE and Saudi Arabia — two of the largest markets in the Middle East — to now also offer Postpay’s pay in 3 instalment option.”
This new partnership comes as the adoption of Buy Now, Pay Later (BNPL) services continues to rise in the Middle East. In fact, the BNPL payment industry in the region is forecasted to grow by 99.8% on an annual basis to reach $7187.8 million (USD) in 2022.
Sam continued: “More and more of our customers are looking to pay for their flights in instalments. BNPL has been immensely popular with our customers in North America, the UK, Europe and Australia, and we are also seeing increased demand from customers in the Middle East. In many instances travel is last minute or unbudgeted, so BNPL for flight bookings is ideal. Rather than paying the full cost upfront, customers can pay in more manageable instalments.”
Founded in Dubai in 2018, Postpay has grown quickly to become a leading BNPL provider in the region. Postpay offers shoppers the option to pay for purchases in three interest-free instalments, without any additional fees when payments are made on time, and is helping consumers shop smarter and more responsibly.
Postpay: “Postpay offers shoppers a transparent and flexible payment option. We aim to transform the way people pay without burdening them with interest fees and hidden charges. We’re thrilled that, for the first time thanks to our new partnership with Alternative Airlines, Postpay can be used to spread the cost of flights. Alternative Airlines’ user-friendly site makes it quick and easy to book flights to any destination online and pay in 3 with Postpay.”
