PSA: From Today You Can Buy Now, Pay Later on Jetstar Flights
When Afterpay began becoming widely enlisted by retail stores, we cried tears of joy, with the reality of owning pricier items fast becoming one step closer in our grasp. And now, it seems that budget airline Jetstar is joining the “buy now, pay later” philosophy, introducing Afterpay to its payment offerings.
According to Business Insider Australia, as of today, Afterpay will be available on Jetstar’s website, initially just for local flights costing between $200 and $1000. The only catch is, you’ll need to book flights at least eight weeks in advance.

Co-founder and managing director of Afterpay Nick Molnar commented on this exciting aviation move stating that, “There has been a clear shift in millennials’ share of wallet towards service industries and more specifically travel.” Molnar also stating, “At Afterpay, we are focused on offering Afterpay for life’s little luxuries and we believe the demand for Afterpay in the travel market will be very strong.”
CEO of Jetstar, Jayne Hrdlicka is also positive about the new partnership. “By partnering with Afterpay we are giving our customers another payment option to purchase their next holiday, making travelling more often more achievable. Many of Jetstar’s customers already use Afterpay to purchase items at retailers and are familiar with the flexibility of paying over time.”
