Avelo Airlines has announced a multi-year strategic relationship with PayPal. It will provide Avelo Customers with more convenient, flexible, secure, and affordable payment options.
The collaboration includes PayPal’s Pay in 4 interest-free payment feature.
Avelo will be the first U.S. airline to feature PayPal Pay in 4 at the beginning of the shopping journey for travel purchases. It provides more choices for travelers in how they pay and helps them to manage their budgets better.
When selecting Pay in 4 at checkout, eligible customers can break up purchases between $30 – $1,500 into four interest-free payments every two weeks. The first payment is due at the time of purchase.
- 67% of global Pay Later with PayPal customers are repeat users, reflecting its appeal to consumers and its benefit for Avelo.
Avelo Airlines Chairman and CEO Andrew Levy said, “Every journey starts with booking a trip, and our first-of-its-kind collaboration with PayPal is going to make purchasing your next Avelo flight smoother and simpler than ever. PayPal’s Pay in 4 zero-interest flexible payment product makes it easier and more affordable to take advantage of our industry-leading reliability and experience our Soul of Service on an Avelo flight.
Avelo Leverages PayPal Suite of Services
In addition to the use of Pay in 4, Avelo will leverage PayPal’s extended suite of services, including:
- PayPal Checkout: PayPal Checkout offers customers a secure and trusted way to pay for tickets and more. Customers can choose from whatever payment method is on file. That includes credit cards, debit cards, PayPal balance, pay later options, bank withdrawals, and more.
- PayPal Braintree: Avelo will now use PayPal Braintree to process customer transactions. This helps Avelo to improve authorization rates and gives customers a simple and seamless transaction experience. On average, merchants who leverage PayPal Braintree have seen an increase in authorization rates by four percentage points globally.
- Risk as a Service Tools: PayPal’s Fraud Protection Advanced solution will help Avelo ensure that legitimate transactions are approved quickly and fraudulent attempts are declined. In early 2024, Avelo will integrate PayPal’s automated dispute resolution capabilities to recover chargeback costs more quickly and effectively.
With PayPal, Avelo aims to grow its business and offer travelers a superior flight booking experience.
