StormX, creator of the crypto earning app Storm Play, today announced travel enthusiasts will be able to fly in luxury with cryptocurrency, thanks to a deal with travel concierge service I Only Fly First Class. Using STORM tokens awarded through the Storm Play app or purchased on an exchange, wanderlusters will be able to buy discounted flights to countries across the globe through the I Only Fly First Class website.
“Making first class flights available in cryptocurrency to savvy consumers, tech enthusiasts, adventurers, and bargain hunters is a momentous leap forward in merging the worlds of travel and crypto,” StormX CEO Simon Yu said. “Perhaps most exciting is that StormX’s alliance with I Only Fly First Class means that travelling in style — once a luxury afforded by few — is now at the fingertips of everyday people. By watching advertisements or reviewing products, for example, anyone anywhere in the world can be rewarded in STORM Tokens and then use them to travel the world first class at more affordable fares.”
I Only Fly First Class offers discounted first and business class flights to its users, which are often thousands of dollars less than the published retail price found on traditional airline booking sites. This lets people on a budget travel internationally without sacrificing the comfort and luxury of first class. I Only Fly First Class carriers include Korean Airlines, Singapore Airlines, Asiana Airlines, Cathay Pacific, and Emirates.
“The travelers on our platform come to us for the best luxury deals that are off the beaten path of traditional flight booking,” I Only Fly First Class CEO David Mei said. “Incorporating the added bonus of being able to pay in cryptocurrency is an exciting way to recognize our thriving community. Our focus is to provide the most progressive, upscale, and secure air travel experience in the world, and our alliance with StormX will help us make this a reality for an entirely new community of tech lovers.”
The alliance marks one of the first mainstream consumer use cases of cryptocurrency in the travel industry, furthering StormX’s mission of bridging the gap between the crypto and mainstream worlds and boosting the global acceptance of digital currencies across a wide range of industries.
The I Only Fly First Class website will be featured on the Storm Play app, which has generated more than 1.5 million downloads from 187 countries. Storm Play users can watch I Only Fly First Class advertisements or sign up for the services through the app. The alliance will also further StormX’s development of the Storm Market platform, a global marketplace that will let users advance their earning and spending power across different industry verticals, including travel, gaming, freelance work, and e-commerce.
