You may have dabbled with Afterpay online to pay for that fave dress or new kicks and got a little addicted to the ‘buy now pay later’ system, which splits your bill into 4 payments over 8 weeks. Hell, you may have gone a little overboard and racked up way too many Afterpay purchases and had to live off Mie Goreng noodles for a month. However, Jetstar has upped the ante and became the first Australian airline to sign onto Afterpay as an option to pay for flights! #MindAndFuturePayBlown
You can use the addictive fortnightly payment platform to pay for domestic tickets priced between $A200 and $A1000 booked at least eight weeks in advance, with a $A10 service fee per transaction.
Jetstar Group chief executive Jayne Hrdlicka said the payment service could be extended to international flights. YASSSS!
“Partnering with Afterpay gives our customers the option to lock in low fares at today’s prices and pay over time, even during our sales,” she said.
And they know they have us right by the balls! “There has been a clear shift in millennials share of wallet towards the services industry and more specifically travel,” said Afterpay co-founder, Nick Molnar.
We just need a moment to calm down…and book a flight or ten. Better stock up on the Mie Goreng, we’re in for the long haul!
