Buying Plane Tickets Available With Cryptocurrency
Recently StormX has announced that customers will have an opportunity to buy plane tickets with digital currency. They have partnered with a ravel concierge service I Only Fly First Class. You can purchase tickets through the Storm Play app.
Now customers will be able to use Storm tokens to purchase discounted first class airfare. The company will purchase award miles from different programs and using these book flights means they can pass the saving to the customers.
Speaking about the partnership, the CEO of StormX said;
The CEO of I Only Fly First Class said, that making first class flights available in cryptocurrency to savvy consumers, tech enthusiasts, adventurers, and bargain hunters is a momentous leap forward in merging the worlds of travel and crypto. With this application anyone anywhere in the world can be rewarded in Storm Tokens and then use them for traveling.
“The travellers on our platform come to us for the best luxury deals that are off the beaten path of traditional flight booking. Incorporating the added bonus of being able to pay in cryptocurrency – and being one of the first concierge services to offer this option – is an exciting way to recognise our thriving community. Our focus is to provide the most progressive, upscale, and secure air travel experience in the world, and our alliance with StormX will help us make this a reality for an entirely new community of tech lovers.”
One of the reasons of such a big deal is that it is one of the first major steps at bridging the gap between digital currency and the travel industry, which may well inspire others to follow suit.
