Capital A, UnionDigital Bank Offer Fly Now, Pay Later for AirAsia Flights

by July 31, 2023

Capital A has inked a partnership with Philippines’ UnionDigital Bank that includes its three subsidiaries; AirAsia, airasia Superapp, and its fintech arm BigPay.

UnionDigital Bank will be providing embedded finance in partnership with BigPay within the airasia Superapp, the main booking channel for AirAsia flights in the Philippines.

Through this partnership, frequent fliers will now have the option for flexible payments with the Fly Now, Pay Later offering available in the airasia Superapp along with exclusive co-branding deals.

This also serves to expand BigPay’s footprint in the Philippines. The fintech had rolled out cash pick up services in the country last year as an enhancement of its remittance services.
