«airBaltic» Bitcoin Payments Extended by Various Crypto Currencies

In 2014, airBaltic became the world’s first airline to accept Bitcoin payments for its flight tickets. Now, in cooperation with service provider BitPay, airBaltic accepts also other cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin Cash, Ether and Dogecoin among others for bookings made on its website.

Martin Gauss, Chief Executive Officer of airBaltic: “As an innovative airline, we always strive to search for ways to improve the customer experience starting from the booking process. Over the years around 1000 clients have used the payment option, which may not seem like a lot, but still offers passengers a unique payment option hard to find elsewhere.”

The ticket prices on the website are displayed in euros. When airBaltic customers pay for their flight, their crypto currencies are converted into euros automatically at the current exchange rate by the payment system operator BitPay. airBaltic does not receive payments in crypto currencies. Availability of payments in other cryptocurrencies are subject to the cryptocurrency wallet the customer uses.

airBaltic accepts Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Ethereum (ETH), Dogecoin (DOGE) and 4 USD-pegged stablecoins (GUSD, USDC, PAX, and BUSD) as a payment for tickets sold on its website airbaltic.com. The crypto currency payment option is available when purchasing airBaltic GREEN tickets. Payments are free of airBaltic transaction fee and are available for flights booked at least five days ahead of the scheduled departure.
