Brisbane Airport (BNE) announced on December 24 that travellers will soon be able to use TravelbyBit’s cryptocurrency payment system, including bitcoin, dash, ethereum and other cryptocurrencies to shop at stores such as Botanist, Spoon, Windmill & Co., and Forte Espresso, as well as Australian Way, Merino Collection, Carry On, Dreamtime Journey and multiple News Travels across both terminals.
We’re also proud to be the first airport in the world to achieve this in partnership with a small local start-up business such as TravelbyBit, whose pioneering thinking is drawing attention to Brisbane as a serious breeding ground of innovative thinking. This is just the beginning for us as we hope to expand the digital currency option across the business, so watch this space.
General Manager Strategic Planning and Development, Brisbane Airport Corporation
According to the company, the partnership reinforces Brisbane Airport’s aim to promote community projects, support local businesses, improve the passenger experience, and become a leader in the airport digital innovation space.
