LOT Polish Airlines to accept bitcoin payments

Now Accepting | August 6, 2015 By:

On Aug. 4, LOT Polish Airlines announced it is now accepting bitcoin payments for flights to more than 60 global destinations.

“Many of our customers are shopping online, including flights. It is only a matter of time before virtual currency payments will become as popular as credit card use nowadays. We saw this potential,” LOT executive director Jiri Marek.

Tickets can be purchased on LOT’s desktop and mobile websites. LOT does not accept directly, but exchanges the digital currency for fiat using an unnamed payment service provider.

LOT Polish Airlines is the flag carrier of Poland and one of the world’s oldest airlines still in operation.
