Regional airline carrier Surf Air accountant last week that it will accept Bitcoin and Ethereum payments for its month’s membership and charter services.

The press release says that the “all-you-can-fly” private airline will allow the users to pay for their seats through either cryptocurrencies or through their mobile app. It is serving several cities in California, Texas, and Europe.

The company will allow the members to pay a monthly fee in order to fly as many times as they need to be independent. Passengers are also pre-screened through a government-approved background check. As the result, they are not required to wait in security.

The cryptocurrency acceptance is being in partnership with Coinbase, which will be handling the payment side. CEO Sudhin Shahani said in his statement that the reason to accept the Bitcoin and Ethereum forms part of their wider efforts to distort the air service.

Sudhin Described:

“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.”
