Airline Carrier Now Accepting Bitcoin and Ethereum Payments

Bitcoin and Ethereum Payments

Surf Air will be accepting both Bitcoin and Ethereum payments for its monthly membership and charter services.

Users of the airline can pay for their seats with either cryptocurrency through a mobile app, and their monthly membership program, which allows members to fly as many times as they want, will also be accepting crypto payments for its monthly fee.

Coinbase will be handling all the payments for the company.

CEO Sudhin Shahani said that the move to accept Bitcoin and Ethereum is a part of their wider efforts to disrupt air services.

“Digital currency has been on our radar from the very beginning and we are excited to provide our members with another quick and seamless way to do business with Surf Air,” he said.

There are many other small airlines that are doing as Surf Air has done, some taking it even further by looking into the applications of blockchain and how they may be beneficial to ticket disbursement and maintenance tracking.
