Private Jet Charter Company Accepts Cryptocurrency Amid Soaring Demand
In a bid to help an ever-growing number of jet charter travellers book flights quickly, easily and securely, Stratos Jet Charters has announced a partnership and integration with FTX Crypto Marketplace. Clients have already had an overwhelming positive response: In the first week of offering cryptocurrency payments, Stratos clients have booked nearly $500,000 in flights secured with cryptocurrency.
“With the current unprecedented level of demand for private aviation, we were looking for a more secure and efficient way of securing client payments for charter flights,” says Stratos CEO Joel Thomas. “Now clients can secure top quality aircraft more quickly and get where they need to be with even more ease and efficiency.
Thomas says in searching for a crypto partner to integrate with its online booking platform Stratos Marketplace, FTX.US was an ideal fit: FTX offers more features than any other major US platform and it sets the industry standard for security. “The FTX.US platform is sophisticated yet simple for clients to use, and it integrates seamlessly with our air charter marketplace.”
The Stratos marketplace can be used on desktop or mobile devices, giving those making travel plans a window into air carriers’ operational history and travel records. Travelers can also check itineraries and passenger information, as well as confirm catering and ground services for upcoming flights. Now with the new FTX integration, in just a few extra clicks, clients can also easily book and pay for their charter flights..
“Within the first week of integrating the FTX payment platform into Stratos Air Charter Marketplace, we’ve transacted nearly half a million dollars in bookings” says Thomas. “This strongly supports our belief in the value of offering cryptocurrency as a form of payment to book charter flights.”
Brett Harrison, President of FTX US, commented on the news, “We built FTX Pay in order to provide businesses with a quick, secure and inexpensive way to accept payment in any type of currency, with the end goal of revising the global payments landscape. As an organization, Stratos prioritizes the customer experience and we’re happy to assist them in this process through our payment platform. It’s exciting to work with an industry leader and assist in bettering their customer experience while also elevating the presence of digital assets outside of the traditional financial landscape.”
