How airlines can use bitcoin to maximize profitability

Online card payments and fraud cost airlines billions in lost profit every year:

            •           1.1% – revenue lost by airlines through website channel due to card fraud

            •           1.7% – revenue lost by airlines through mobile channel due to card fraud

            •           3.4% – bookings rejected due to the suspicion of card fraud

Bitcoin is cheaper to accept than a card payment, and chargebacks are not possible.  Bitnet provides a commerce platform that enables airlines to easily accept bitcoin. Airlines never touch bitcoin and are not exposed to any volatility. We have also partnered with UATP, accepted by >260+ airlines globally, to make it easier for airlines to accept bitcoins.
