By paying with bitcoin, travelers can reserve a private jet at any time of day or night, without worrying about whether the bank is open to transfer the payment.
After all, the price of booking a private jet is typically over €20,000, so settling the bill can require more than a simple swipe of a credit card.

“By using BitPay to make the transaction, we instantly convert the amount into euros or sterling to minimize the risk. This approach is already in use at all of the international companies that already accept Bitcoin,” explains Mehdi Dialmy, head of the flight department at PrivateFly.
PrivateFly points out that bitcoin payments currently account for 5% of its revenues and are not expected to overtake other payment methods.
