From next year, Virgin Australia’s customers will be able to purchase flights and pay for them later thanks to a new partnership.
LatitudePay, Latitude Financial’s digital payments platform, will become a new payment option on the airline’s website from the first half of 2020 for flights up to $1,000.
An interest-free instalments option for travel over $1,000 will also be made available to Virgin Australia customers next year.
Launched just over a month ago, LatitudePay enables customers to pay for purchases below $1,000 over 10 weekly payments with no interest.
Virgin Australia Group CEO and managing director Paul Scurrah said: “Virgin Australia aims to deliver the best value airfares for travellers, and this new payment option with LatitudePay will provide more choice and flexibility for our passengers who are planning on booking their next trip or holiday.”
Latitude CEO and managing director Ahmed Fahour said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Virgin Australia, a respected brand and the airline of choice for millions of travellers each year.
“This partnership will provide greater payments flexibility for Virgin Australia’s customers, who now have the choice to ‘fly now, pay later’ when they book a domestic or international flight.
“Latitude has been providing payments and instalments options for more than 30 years, which means we are uniquely placed to support Virgin Australia and its customers who want easier ways to reach their chosen destinations.”
