The airline’s intention to embrace bitcoin comes only weeks after it announced its NFT and metaverse aspirations. The purpose of the metaverse launch, as previously reported, is to ensure that the airline is “aligned with the UAE’s vision for the digital economy.”

Al Redha mentioned in statements published in Arab News that his company may need to hire staff to help it develop applications that track client wants. He also discussed the distinctions between NFTs and the metaverse. 

He elaborated:

“Metaverse and NFTs are two separate applications and techniques. You’ll be able to turn your entire process — whether it’s in operation, training, website sales, or the entire experience — into a metaverse-style application, but more significantly, make it interactive.”
