Bitcoin & cryptocurrency payments for private flights

In addition to our mainstream payment options, PrivateFly accepts Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum and 4 USD-pegged stablecoins (GUSD, USDC, PAX, and BUSD) payments for our on-demand private jet flights and membership options - including our PrivateFly Bitcoin Jet Account. Here's how it works.

When & why did PrivateFly start accepting Bitcoin for private flights?

PrivateFly was the first global private jet company to accept payment in Bitcoin, when we started doing so in January 2014.

We began to accept payment in Bitcoin in response to client demand, at a time of rising interest in the cryptocurrency. And as our ongoing aim is to make booking a private jet as seamless a process as possible, it was a logical addition to our payment options.

With Bitcoin payment being fast, flexible and not subject to banking hours, it can be a very practical choice for private jet clients. Over 20% of our flights are booked for the same day or next day departure, so often clients are looking to make payment quickly.

How does PrivateFly process Bitcoin payments?

For clients who wish to pay in Bitcoin for a one-off flight (on-demand), we will usually quote for the payment in euros and then use BitPay to process the payments in Bitcoin. BitPay is a leading payment technology provider, which acts as a secure gateway between the client and a retailer - such as PrivateFly.

The client makes payment from their secure BitPay payment wallet. We then convert the payment instantly to euros, sterling or dollars to minimise currency fluctuation risks.

Can I buy a Jet Card with Bitcoin?

The PrivateFly Jet Card gives members guaranteed and priority access to their preferred aircraft category, with fixed hourly rates, short notice booking and cancellation terms, and 24/7 service through a dedicated Personal Account Manager. Jet Card memberships can be paid for in Bitcoin via BitPay, with

the payment then converted to euros, sterling or dollars.

Other cryptocurrency payments

We can also take payment in other cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Ethereum (ETH), and 4 USD-pegged stablecoins (GUSD, USDC, PAX, and BUSD). If you want to pay with another cryptocurrency please contact our team to check rates.
