Hong Kong carrier Cathay Pacific has partnered with Atome, Asia’s leading buy now pay later brand, to offer travellers in Singapore the flexibility of booking their flights first and paying for them later. The “Book Now Pay Later” feature provides travellers with another convenient way to pay for their flights over three monthly interest-free deferred payments when they book on cathaypacific.com.
This new payment feature will allow travellers in Singapore to seamlessly book and enjoy their getaways first, and spread out the cost of their tickets into three easy deferred payments, with no interest and administrative fees incurred. To pay, users simply download the Atome app and register, before selecting Atome as the checkout payment option on the Cathay Pacific website.
Cathay Pacific is the first airline to partner with Atome to offer a flexible buy now pay later payment option at checkout. This is being rolled out in Singapore first, and then to the wider Southeast Asia region in the future.
Regional General Manager of Cathay Pacific Southeast Asia Dominic Perret, said: “We are very happy to be partnering with Atome to offer our customers greater flexibility when they fly with us. As we continue to give our customers the best value and assurance when they book directly via our website, this new payment option will provide an additional benefit to those who prefer to pay for their travels over a period of time. It is also timely, as borders re-open and we look forward to welcoming more customers on board our flights again.”
Regional Head of Commercial at Atome, William Yang said: “Our regional partnership with Cathay Pacific comes at an important time as Singapore and the world are gradually re-opening borders and allowing the resumption of leisure and business travel. We recognise this incredible opportunity and are excited we can play our part in supporting this post COVID-19 recovery by enabling travellers to have flexible and convenient payment options to book their much-awaited holiday or business trips.
