Amsterdam’s international airport has now a cryptocurrency ATM that lets passengers convert their euros into bitcoin and/or ethereum.

The airport revealed it is assessing demand for the two most prominent cryptocurrencies among passengers. It will be a six-month trial; an initiative that is the first of its kind in any European airport.

Specifically, the crypto ATM is installed in Arrival Hall 2 which is also accessible by the corridor to Departure Halls 1 and 2 where departing passengers frequent. Tanja Dik, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol’s director of consumer products and services, said in statements:

“With the Bitcoin ATM, we hope to provide a useful service to passengers by allowing them to easily exchange ‘local’ euros for the ‘global’ cryptocurrencies Bitcoin and Ethereum. That can be beneficial if, for instance, it’s not possible to spend euros in their home country.”

The concept of allowing travelers to use cryptocurrencies like bitcoin at international airports to avoid the hassle of high conversion fees during currency conversion is catching on among airport operators globally.

In a more comprehensive embrace of cryptocurrencies, Australia’s Brisbane airport – the country’s third-busiest airport by passenger traffic – introduced crypto payments at a number of retail establishments across the airport’s two terminals earlier this year.
