New flight compensation company Colibra is now live for users in the United Arab Emirates to use.

For the first time the ‘Fly Now, Pay if Okay’ service allows passengers with a valid UAE residency to book flights that they only pay for if their flight arrives on time.

They are the first in the world to use the pilot version of the product and test this disruptive travel technology.

The Colibra app guarantees travelling UAE residents that if their flight is cancelled or delayed for more than three hours, they do not have to pay for their plane tickets at all.

This service is entirely free for users of the app, allowing them to book tickets within 30 days before departure (and arrival) and then pay the regular ticket fare if their flight arrives on time or within three hours of its scheduled departure.

The Colibra app is now available to download on the Apple Store for IOS users, as well as on the Google Play Store for Android users.

How it works:

  1. The passenger chooses a flight – it must depart and arrive within 30 days from the booking date;
  2. They enter their personal data – Colibra doesn’t charge at the time of booking;
  3. Colibra charges the passenger upon arrival if everything goes smoothly and the service is delivered (ticket’s price is at no extra cost). In all other cases, the user travels for free.
