LONDON – The world’s first ‘all-you-can-fly’ airline Surf Air announced on Tuesday it is now accepting cryptocurrency payments.

Surf Air will accept bitcoin and ethereum payments for its monthly membership and to charter global flights, in a move the airline described as a “natural progression” from its Silicon Valley roots.

“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 be on the cutting edge of accepting new forms of payment such as bitcoin and ethereum,” said CEO of Surf Air Europe Simon Talling-Smith.

“This comes ahead of our inaugural flight from London City Airport that will transform the business travel experience for our European membership base,” he said.

Bitcoin hit a new high of $12,650 on Wednesday as it continues to be bought in by speculators.
