According to the official press release published by Universal Air Travel Plan (UATP) on June 16, Vueling has partnered with BitPay and UATP itself to make cryptocurrencies acceptable for purchasing airline tickets, including coins. like SHIB and DOGE.
The implementation of cryptographic payments by a major low-cost airline, Vueling, continues the trend of recent months as more and more companies are expanding the possibilities of receiving payments for their products and services using cryptocurrencies. As a subsidiary of the major international airline holding company International Airlines Group and the second largest airline in Spain, Vueling transports more than 30 million passengers a year and operates in 122 destinations around the world. With these numbers, the company can be considered a solid addition to the ranking of digital currency acceptors.
Another important participant in the agreement was the company UATP, whose technology is widely used in the aeronautical industry. While ticket prices are displayed in fiat currency, customers will be able to pay via push transactions using a wide variety of cryptocurrency wallets. Among the cryptocurrencies, which will be available for payment, are SHIB, DOGE, BTC and other popular currencies.
