Openpay, bitcoin

Mexico-based airlines TAR Aerolineas has become the first in Latin America to accept bitcoin payments.

The airliner will accept payments in the digital currency following a partnership between Openpay– a Mexico-based payment service provider – and payment processor BitPay.

In a statement, Jose Calzadias, commercial manager at TAR, said that the company, which serves 12 destinations throughout Mexico, would continue to evaluate payment options that give “real added value” to customers.

The news follows Latvian airline airBaltic’s Twitter announcement that it was accepting bitcoin in July last year.

DisclaimerCoinDesk founder Shakil Khan is an investor in BitPay.
