Alternative Airlines, a UK-based global flight search and booking platform, in October last year partnered with Utrust, a payment method offering cryptocurrency payments of your choice. With this partnership, Alternative Airlines customers can pay for flights to destinations around the globe using a range of cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), DASH, DigiByte (DGB).
Alternative Airlines currently works with over 600 global airlines to provide customers with a greater choice of flights and payment methods. Partnering with Utrust means customers can pay for competitively priced flights rates through all the major airlines, including American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, United Airlines, British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, and China Southern Airlines. Specializing in off-the-beaten-track destinations, Alternative Airlines also works with national and regional carriers such as Air Chathams in New Zealand.
With the help of Utrust, Alternative Airlines’ customers can use an extremely safe way to pay. Utrust is providing customers with the increased security and convenience of cryptocurrency payments by offering buyer protection on all purchases and crypto-to-cash settlements.
Sam Argyle, Managing Director of Alternative Airlines, said, “At Alternative Airlines, we are committed to offering a seamless transaction process, while allowing our customers to choose how they want to pay. Alternativeairlines.com is a single platform for travellers to easily search and book flights on over 600 airlines. We believe crypto to be the money of tomorrow, playing an important role in the future of commerce. Therefore, we are incredibly excited, as our partnership with Utrust is the next major step in continuing to tailor the online booking experience to the customer, who now have the opportunity to pay with cryptocurrency on all of the airlines that we ticket.”
Alternative Airlines, an IATA-accredited agency, was featured in the 2019 Sunday Times Fast Track Tech 100, which highlights the top 100 fastest growing technology companies and awarded Best Selling Travel Agent in 2017. Customers can also choose from over 25 international payment methods — including all major debit cards and payment plans from all the best-known global providers — as well as over 160 localized currencies.

Utrust is the leading cryptocurrency payment solution designed to modernize the finance and payments industry and solve the problems of traditional payment methods by offering instant transactions, buyer protection, and immediate crypto-to-cash settlements for the merchant. The Swiss-based startup was granted SRO approval to operate as a ‘financial intermediary’ under VQF, the self-regulatory organization approved by Switzerland’s independent financial-markets regulator, FINMA. The Utrust platform went live in 2019 when football club S.L. Benfica came on board as the first merchant and the first major European football club to accept cryptocurrency. Utrust has since added Phone House Portugal to its growing list of merchants.
