TORONTO — Porter Airlines is introducing more payment options for customers when purchasing flights on the company’s website, at flyporter.com.
Porter says travel agents may also select payment financing for their clients when making a booking on Porter’s site.
Porter is partnering with Ingenico to provide alternative secure payment methods, starting with PayPal and WeChat.
The carrier says new channels are also being considered for future introduction.
Customers who want to travel, but prefer to spread out their costs, can finance purchases of $300 or more by paying through monthly installments using Uplift.
Customers will see the total cost of their trip at the time of booking, along with the monthly payment amount, so they can easily budget and experience the travel they deserve. There are no late fees or prepayment penalties, and customers can travel even before they are finished making their prepayments.
“Customers are adopting new ways of making purchases and we want to give them more choices when shopping with Porter,” said Porter’s Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer, Kevin Jackson. “These options provide the budget flexibility and convenience many people are looking for.”
