Surf Air: “It Only Makes Sense That We Would Accept Bitcoin as a Progressive Form of Payment

The Silicon Valley-based air travel provider, Surf Air, is now accepting the cryptocurrencies bitcoin and ethereum for services. This means Surf Air members can use their digital assets for a wide range of flights. Within the U.S., Surf Air customers can fly to 70 destinations in California and 30 daily routes that fly to Texas. Further, the charters fly to Europe as well, to places like London, Zurich, and Ibiza. The firm explains that moving towards cryptocurrencies is a “natural progression” for the firm.

“Surf Air was built on the idea of disrupting and changing the way the world sources, purchases and accesses air travel so it only makes sense that we would also be on the cutting-edge of accepting disruptive and progressive forms of payment such as bitcoin and ethereum,” explains Sudhin Shahani, the chief executive officer of Surf Air.

Similarly, bitcoin users are a tremendously motivated community of early adopters. By creating connective tissue between these forward-thinking business models, I believe we’re molding the future for consumer-first, experience-driven commerce.
