Travellers from Malaysia and Singapore and soon Hong Kong can choose to travel first and pay later with Malaysia Airlines.
This follows the establishment of a regional partnership between the airlines parent company Malaysia Aviation Group and Buy Now Pay Later (BNPL) platform hoolah.
The move lets travellers book air tickets online from Malaysia Airlines and pay for their flights via hoolah’s three-month, interest-free payment option.
“We are excited to collaborate with hoolah as it provides another payment option and flexibility for customers to book their flights with Malaysia Airlines. This marks our first-of-its-kind partnership with a BNPL provider in Asia, and it couldn’t be timelier as we anticipate growing demands for travel with the reopening of our borders soon,” said Lau Yin May, Group Chief Marketing and Customer Experience Officer of Malaysia Airlines.
“As countries in the region gradually open up their borders, we look forward to making travel more accessible and affordable for travellers, along with the flexibility to pay for their holiday over time,” said Arvin Singh, CEO and Co-Founder of hoolah.
