Malaysian Airlines, hoolah empower travellers with BNPL optionsMalaysia Aviation Group (MAG), the parent company of national carrier Malaysian Airlines, has announced a regional partnership with hoolah, Asia’s omnichannel Buy Now Pay Later (BNPL) platform, to provide a seamless and convenient payment option for travellers.

In a statement, MAG said through this collaboration, travellers in Malaysia, Singapore and soon Hong Kong, can now book their getaway with Malaysia Airlines online and pay for their flights via hoolah’s flexible three-month, interest-free payment option. 

This means that travellers can fly to their destination and enjoy their vacation before paying for the ticket in full, while spreading the cost over three monthly interest-free installments, it said.

This partnership comes at an opportune time as Malaysia recently announced the reopening of its borders on April 1, following a two-year closure brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic, MAG said.

As a member of the Travel Safe Alliance Malaysia, Malaysia Airlines will continue to facilitate safe and seamless travels to support the country’s #ReopeningSafely strategy. 

Additionally, it has also launched hoolah’s BNPL offering on Journify, its integrated one-stop travel and lifestyle digital platform where consumers can discover new places such as attractions, foods, nature and more; plan their trips around Malaysia; and shop local products. 

Through this partnership, customers can shop seamlessly for products and services, and conveniently pay later, it said.

Lau Yin May, group chief marketing and customer experience officer of Malaysia Airlines, said the collaboration with hoolah provides another payment option and flexibility for customers to book their flights with Malaysia Airlines and shop on Journify. 

“This marks our first-of-its-kind partnership with a BNPL provider in Asia, and it couldn’t be timelier as we anticipate growing demands for travel with the reopening of our borders soon.

“Malaysia Airlines is committed to facilitating safe and seamless travels to all our guests, and now, we are taking the worry out of planning a trip, as they’ll be able to book and enjoy their getaway ahead of time, before paying for their trip through interest-free installments,” said Lau.

Arvin Singh, chief executive officer and co-founder of hoolah said the company is thrilled to partner with Malaysian Aviation Group in Asia. 

“As countries in the region gradually open up their borders, we look forward to making travel more accessible and affordable for travellers, along with the flexibility to pay for their holiday over time,” he added.
