#Emirates Airlines To Accept #Bitcoin

BREAKING: #Emirates Airlines To Accept #Bitcoin As Payment Option—-The Genius Media Nigeria reports that Emirates Airlines, one of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) leading airlines, announced that it will adopt Bitcoin as a payment option for customers looking to fly with the airline, which ranks #5 among the top 20 airlines according to Airline Ratings.

The announcement was made by the company’s chief operating officer (COO), Adel Ahmed Al-Redha, who mentioned that Emirates Airlines, would soon accept “bitcoin as a payment option.” He also mentioned that the airline’s website will feature non-fungible token (NFT) collections.

Reports of the airline’s plan to embrace bitcoin as a payment option come just a few weeks after the airline revealed its NFT and metaverse plans. The company’s goal with the metaverse launch is to ensure the airline is “aligned with the UAE’s vision for the digital economy.”

Al-Redha stated the airline sector had recovered well, as seen by the increased number of passengers. However, he noted that the greatest problem is the availability of resources across the network, but that they “are in a better position than other nations because of the accessibility.

UAE with its recent developments aims to stand at the forefront of crypto adoption. The country has been very welcoming to digital assets and their underlying technology.
