The Aviation Factory becomes the first aviation broker in Europe to accept cryptocurrency payments.
The Aviation Factory (TAF), the European specialist when it comes to organizing personalized flights, sets the tone again. The Belgian aviation company is the first major aviation broker in Europe to accept cryptocurrency payments.
Anyone who wants to rent a private plane can now pay in bitcoin, ethereum or other cryptocurrencies.
The company has a high-performance computing system that can monitor the availability of thousands of aircraft around the world. The database contains more than 3360 private jets. Customers enter the desired route on the site TAF and depending on the client's requests, the broker offers the price proposals and the available aircraft.
"During quarantine, many young people became interested in trading stocks and cryptocurrencies. Some of them did not avoid risks and made huge profits. These millennials are now living and have no worries about booking a private jet to celebrate their success. ”, said Carl Legein, CEO of The Aviation Factory.
A new group of private jet users has emerged: the "Robinhood generation", named after the well-known stock exchange application. Some of the customers asked if they could pay for their flight in crypto. This is possible now. In addition to bitcoin, The Aviation Factory also accepts ethereum, but also other cryptocurrencies as a means of payment. ”
