Fintech Affirm to Assist FlightHub with Bringing Flexible Payment Options to Canadian Travelers

FlightHub, the Canadian online travel agency and subsidiary of the travel innovation company Momentum Ventures, announced a partnership with Affirm (NASDAQ: AFRM), the payment network that empowers consumers and helps merchants drive growth, “to bring transparent and flexible payment options to eligible Canadian travelers.”

At a time where Canadians are “increasingly prioritizing travel over essential expenses, and with nearly half of Canadians (48%) reducing other spending to afford travel due to rising inflation costs, as per a 2023 FlightHub survey, offering more affordable travel options can help Canadians enjoy their trips and experiences without compromising their finances.”

Christina Allen, Vice President of Partnerships at FlightHub, said:

“Our sister brand has successfully partnered with Affirm in the United States for nearly five years, and now we are thrilled to offer greater flexibility and choice at checkout to eligible FlightHub travelers in our home country, Canada. With summer approaching, many Canadians are eager to plan their next big getaway. By expanding into the Canadian market with Affirm, we aim to make travel more budget-friendly and accessible.”

Through this partnership, FlightHub aims to “make booking and paying for flights more convenient and flexible.”

By selecting Affirm at checkout, consumers can split “the total cost of their purchase of $200 CAD or more into monthly payments, subject to eligibility.”

They are shown the total cost of their purchase up front and “won’t pay more than they agree to at checkout, as there are no late or hidden fees when paying over time with Affirm.”

Stacey Paul, Senior Director of Client Success at Affirm, said:

“We’re thrilled to bring the flexibility and transparency of Affirm to FlightHub’s Canadian consumers, building on the success of our existing partnership in the U.S.. Vacations are top-of-mind for Canadians as summer nears, but that doesn’t mean they’re willing to compromise their finances. Affirm offers a smart way to pay, enabling eligible consumers to purchase in the way that works for their budgets, without being saddled with revolving interest or late fees.”

As noted in the update, FlightHub, a Momentum Ventures subsidiary, is “a North American online travel agency (OTA) based in Montreal, Canada.”

FlightHub says that it “serves millions of Canadians each year, enabling more people to visit new places and explore new cultures.”

FlightHub’s goal is to “offer travellers the most affordable flights, optimal itineraries, and exceptional customer service.”

The online travel agency (OTA) believes “that broadening travel possibilities and connecting people across borders increases human consciousness, reduces fear, and inspires positive change. Founded in 2012, FlightHub has facilitated more than 30 million connections.”

As covered, Affirm’s mission is “to deliver honest financial products that improve lives.”

By building a new kind of payment network – one based on trust, transparency and putting people first – they empower millions of consumers “to spend and save responsibly, and give thousands of businesses the tools to fuel growth.”
