Turkmenistan’s Ashgabat finds a way to earn money by paying with bank cards for airline tickets

Queues in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan are accumulating not only for groceries. Many people gather daily at the Fly Dubai air ticket sales offices.

However, the Chronicle of Turkmenistan found out that people do not need air tickets, but they try to earn money using their Visa bank cards. You can pay by credit cards at the airline’s ticket offices, but you can’t pay for purchases worth more than US $ 50 per day from cards issued by Turkmen banks. Cashiers allow you to pay with multiple cards. People in queues come to the rescue. They give their cards to those who wish to purchase a ticket. After payment, the buyer returns TM 300 in cash to people.

The benefits are mutual. If you pay for the air ticket in cash, then cashiers accept US dollars only. Since according to the state course (TM 3.5 for US $ 1) there are no dollars anywhere, they must be bought on the black market for ~ TM 18.5 for US $ 1. The cardholder who paid US $ 50 from it, not only cashes out his money, which is difficult to do through ATMs, but wins, receiving not TM 3.50 per dollar, but TM 6.

However, spending even a whole day at the air ticket sales office it is not always possible to earn something. There are many people who wish to receive money in this way, and the demand for cards depends on the number of airline customers and the availability of air tickets. In this regard, quarrels and fights often arise in these queues.
