Star Jets International Accepts BTC Payments
This is not the first private airline that accepts Bitcoin or cryptocurrency payments. Back in October 2017, Star Jets International announced that it started accepting Bitcoin payments for its services. The company has access to over 5,000 different private jets in the United States and more than 15,000 all over the world.
Other airlines like Peach Air or Lot decided to embrace cryptocurrencies in the past but it is unclear whether they are still accepting them or not. Peach Air had the intention to do it, while LOT stopped processing payments via the famous cryptocurrency just some years ago.
