Emirates Airline Is Planning to Use Bitcoin as a Payment Service

Emirates Airline, one of the UAE’s most well-known airlines, has announced plans to incorporate “bitcoin as a payment service.” The airline intends to hire people to develop programs that track customer wants.

According to the company’s chief operating officer (COO), Adel Ahmed Al-Redha, the UAE’s top airline, Emirates Airline, would soon accept “bitcoin as a payment option.” In addition, the airline’s website will feature NFT collections.

The airline’s intention to embrace bitcoin comes only weeks after it announced its NFT and metaverse aspirations. The purpose of the metaverse launch, according to Bitcoin.com News, is to ensure that the airline is “aligned with the UAE’s vision for the digital economy.”

Al Redha indicated in statements published in Arab News that his company may need to hire staff to help it develop applications that track client wants. He also discussed the distinctions between NFTs and the metaverse. He elaborated:

“NFTs and metaverse are two different applications and approaches. With the metaverse, you will be able to transform your whole processes — whether it is in operation, training, sales on the website, or complete experience — into a metaverse type application, but more importantly making it interactive.”

The story did not specify when the airline plans to begin accepting bitcoin payments.
