You can now pay for your jet card program with Nicholas Air via cryptocurrency

Nicholas Air is the latest private aviation provider to being accepting cryptocurrency for jet card purchases.

“We’ve always prided ourselves on bringing innovative practices to the private jet market and our ability to accept cryptocurrency as a form of jet card payment is the latest iteration of that,” Nicholas Air founder and CEO Nicholas Correnti tells Private Jet Card Comparisons.

The company will work with customers to decide which crypto form match what works for them.

Last month, FlyExclusive said it had signed an agreement with BitPay, a large BitCoin and cryptocurrency payment service. The deal enables customers to use Bitcoin, Ethereum, or other cryptocurrency forms.

In February, Directional Aviation’s PrivateFly begun allowing flyers to create a Bitcoin account. Flight charges are based on the value at the time of booking.

It has been accepting cryptocurrency since 2014. More than one in 10 of its charter flights were paid for in Bitcoin during January. The bookings represented 19% of its sales.

Brokers have been accepting cyber payments for a while. However, the new currencies seem to be taking hold with large operators as well.

Nicholas Air offers a variety of jet cards, including by hours, dollar deposits, and pay-as-you-go. It offers aircraft-specific options on the Pilatus PC-12, Embraer Phenom 100 and Phenom 300, Citation CJ3 and Latitude, and Bombardier Challenger 300. It has recently been expanding its fleet, which averages under five years old.
