Leading Australian airline offering flights on a fly now, pay later credit basis......

As the global financial crisis begins to bite, an Australian airline is offering flights on credit with a fly now and pay later offer.

Qantas customers can ‘fly now, pay later with a new payment option which is available on both domestic and international flights with credit provider Zip and earn Qantas Points.  Frequent Flyers will also be able to choose to earn Qantas Points through Zip’s loyalty program, Zip Rewards, when making some everyday purchases providing another way for members to maximise the points they earn.

Specifically, frequent flyers can earn:

3,000 points when they sign up and link their Zip account and complete their first transaction.
500 points each time they reach their Zip Rewards goal (see below for further details).
1 point for every $3 spent on eligible flights on with Zip.
Qantas Loyalty CEO Olivia Wirth said this is the first time the airline has partnered with a buy now, pay later provider to offer the payment option for flight bookings.  "After two years of restricted travel Australians are making up for lost time. Domestic travel is back at pre-COVID levels while international travel is building back strongly to destinations like the US, Europe, Bali and Fiji.  The option to buy now, pay later through Zip gives our customers more choice in how they pay for their flights. With Zip they can spread the cost over time choosing flexible repayments, and also earn Qantas Points on the payment as well as the flight itself."

The airline seems to have no issues with sharing the details of its 14 million frequent flyers with Zip.  "Zip is thrilled to partner with Qantas to transform the way Australians pay for travel. By giving customers access to Zip’s fair, flexible and transparent payment solutions, travellers can sit back and enjoy their trip knowing they’re in control of their finances when they get home." Said Zip ANZ Managing Director, Cynthia Scott, adding:  "We are also giving freedom and choice back to customers by giving them the option to pay for their trip before they go, or when they get back. Plus, they can earn Qantas Points along the way. We want Zip to be the first payment choice everywhere and every day and partnering with leaders in travel like Qantas will help get us there sooner.

Qantas Loyalty offers points on a number of financial services products including credit cards with all the major banks, home and personal loans, insurance, Qantas Travel Money and investment and wealth management solutions.
