TapJets, the private jet instant booking platform, published a press release on January 16 stating that the company is accepting ethereum as a method of payment. It is stated that customers can now instantly book their private flight from their smartphones, and head to the airport while the blockchain transaction is completed in the background.
TapJets started taking bitcoin as payment in July 2017 and saw a steady increase of transactions in the cryptocurrency to book flights through their app.
The instant nature of cryptocurrency transactions even further speeds up their booking process. The new payment option removes the time barrier of traditional bank wire payment or credit card limits for large purchases such as private jet travel, which now makes the customer experience even more streamlined and convenient.

Kesselman also said that private jet travel has provided many folks with a discrete mode of transportation and accepting bitcoin makes such travel even more private.
According to the company, TapJets instant booking platform is the only platform in the world where you can book your private jet in less than one minute, with over 12,000 clients accessing the platform to book their flights and bid on Flight Auctions.
