The International Airport of Maiquetia named after Simon Bolivar (Simón Bolívar International Airport) in Venezuela will add the ability to pay for air tickets and other services using Bitcoin, DASH, and the national currency Petro.

As reported by the local media ElSiglo, The director of the airport, Freddie Borges, said that the payment process in cryptocurrencies is organized in accordance with the requirements of the local regulator, Sunacrip. Sunacrip will ensure that crypto payment methods are in accordance with national laws.


According to Borges, the airport strives to offer innovative technologies and convenient payment methods not only to local passengers but also to foreign tourists.

Borges said:

“We will activate a button for cryptocurrency payments in the airport platforms and commercial activities, in coordination with Sunacrip.”


In August, the Venezuelan airline Turpial made it possible to pay for air tickets in bitcoin.

In January 2018, Brisbane Airport in Australia was the first in the world to announce support for cryptocurrencies.

Recall that in November 2020, the Venezuelan branch of Pizza Hut began accepting bitcoin as payment.  In April 2021, the largest aviation training center in the country, Caracas Air, also added BTC.

In March 2021, the Bank of Venezuela provided citizens with the opportunity to buy stable coins. Venezuela will launch a digital bolivar in October.
