Cryptocurrencies such as Petro, Bitcóin, Dash and other digital currencies, may be used at the Simón Bolívar International Airport in Maiquetía, to purchase tickets and other services, provided by the main air terminal in the country. 

“We will activate a button that is for payment of cryptocurrencies in the airport platforms and commercial activities, in coordination with Sunacrip,” announced Freddy Borges, director of the Maiquetía International Airport, during the delivery of the pedestrian access bridges that were rehabilitated.

Borges indicated that the use of cryptocurrencies will be governed by the National Superintendency of Cryptocurrencies and Related Activities (Sunacrip) and will be an advance towards the international standards of the Maiquetía Airport, given the progressive entry of Russian or European tourists to the country, and a boost to the digital currency that the country is looking for.

"Just as Russian passengers arrived in Margarita, they will also come to La Guaira, through Conviasa, so we must advance in these new technological economic systems that can be accessed," Borges stressed.

He reported that the domestic flights most requested by users during the flexible weeks are with destinations to Nueva Esparta, Los Roques and Maracaibo; and the international ones to Mexico and the Dominican Republic.
