With North America, and the world at large, gradually reopening, we have a feeling that people are chomping at the bit to travel once more. And today, Air Canada announced a new ‘book now, pay later’ option for those trying to catch a flight, thanks to a new partnership. Let’s check it out!
Air Canada has partnered with Uplift, which has already made a name for itself in the buy now, pay later world. In fact, the company has existing partnerships with other airlines, including Lufthansa, Southwest, United, and more. How does it work? It’s simple!
Excellent news for Quebec City as we announce two new routes to Western Canada, with seasonal service to @yvrairport and @FlyYYC from @QuebecYQB for Summer 2022, on top of new routes to Florida announced last July.

All you do is book a flight/vacation as you normally would, then select the Uplift payment option. Once approved, you’ll be auto-charged on a monthly basis, turning a single purchase worth hundreds of dollars into much smaller payments spread out over 18 months.
We did a quick review of the new payment option for your convenience. If you were to book a Christmastime flight from Vancouver to Toronto, it would set you back around $850. With Uplift, that price jumps to $950, but will be made in roughly $50 payments. Basically, it’s a 15% premium to pay over time.
But don’t just take our word for it. You can check out the new Uplift payment option on the Air Canada website for yourself. Happy travels, folks!
