Coinbase was originally the the payment processor provider for all cryptocurrency transaction on CheapAir. However, they announced on Friday they will be integrating with Bitpay. The new integration of Bitpay allows customers to pay for flights with Bitcoin Cash and Dash.
It’s not just flights you can book with Bitcoin but you can also book hotels and pay for them with Bitcoin. I tried this out today and I was able to book the Aria hotel in Las Vegas for 7 nights. I did not complete the transaction but it gave me the choice to pay in Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin and Dash. Apparently they plan to add more Altcoin options in the future.
