Startup that Lets You Pay for Your Flight Tickets in Installments

Ofcourse, Flight Tickets have touched the skies!

Fly the Smart Way

Flying has become so expensive. Not everybody can afford it. Hence, Airfordable, a startup launched from Y Combinator’s Summer 2016 batch that allows you book your flight tickets and pay over time before you take off. Undoubtedly, the startup charges a fee for providing a convenience to pay in installments. Ama Marfo is the Co-founder of this startup.

How it works?

When you find their preferred flight online, using any ticketing portal, you need to upload a screenshot of your flight details. Once your details are approved, Airfordable will calculate a payment plan, which will be up to 3 months. It starts with an upfront initial deposit and ends sometime before you fly. Only after your final payment, Airfordable sends you a confirmed e-ticket for the trip via email. A plus point for the flyers- Airfordable doesn’t check the credit limit of the travelers.

Future Plans

In the near future, the startup plans to expand into layaway payments for vacation packages and hotels. It is also working on a custom travel search platform so users don’t have to upload their own travel screenshots. Airfordable is on a mission to find a financial institution to back their layaway plans. Currently, all flight tickets are being purchased from the company’s operating funds.
