The first airline in the world to announce dealing in “Bitcoin”


El Salvador’s President Najib Bu Kila announced that the low-cost airline “Volari” will accept dealing with the cryptocurrency “Bitcoin”, becoming the first airline in the world to take this step.

In a statement, Volaris said it was working to give customers in the country the option to pay in digital currency for services at the airport.

El Salvador last month adopted Bitcoin as a legal currency.

Bitcoin, the world’s largest cryptocurrency, rose to $63,930 on Tuesday evening, its highest level since the record peak of $64,895 recorded in April 2021.
