Australia's Brisbane Airport working on becoming a fully functional cryptocurrency terminal

International Airports are known for having facilities setup for Duty Free commerce.  Ie... free of tariffs and certain types of custom taxes.  But now in Australia the City of Brisbane is seeking to become the world's first functional cryptocurrency terminal by integrating its bars, restaurants, and retail stores to accept a number of cryptos as a medium of exchange.

Brisbane Airport (BNE) will soon become the first cryptocurrency airport terminal, according to reports from local media. The airport is working with local and international companies to make the entire terminal cryptocurrency friendly, with stores, coffee shops and restaurants accepting BitcoinEther and Dash
The move to digital currencies makes sense for the airport, as the number of crypto investors increases. According to Roel Hellemons, the General Manager of Strategic Planning and Development: 
“Many people around the world have made money investing in cryptocurrencies and a lot of these people travel internationally, so it makes sense to offer a digital currency experience within our terminals.” 
The airport will partner with TravelbyBit, a cryptocurrency payment system, in order to allow travelers the ability to buy digitally. - Cointelegraph
