Lufthansa Is Using Blockchain To Improve Flight Booking

The airline has partnered with Winding Tree to make it easier for travelers to book their flight and hotel in one place without having to go through third parties

German airline Lufthansa partners with Swiss startup company Winding Tree who created a blockchain platform. Lufthansa wants to explore using this technology to make traveling easier.

The two companies in this partnership enhance each other in significant ways. Lufthansa benefits by having access to new technology that directly goes to passengers who fly with them to enjoy a smoother experience when they travel. On Winding Tree’s side, they directly work with airline companies to properly ingratiate their blockchain technology into the airline’s preexisting systems. In the blockchain, a traveler books their flight with Lufthansa, in the traditional fashion. The flight information gets stored and then shared to with other companies, such as hotels, who then send available deals for the city the traveler plans to stay in. Winding Tree effectively eliminates a traveler’s need to go to a third party website, such as Expedia or Travelocity, to book a hotel aligned with their flight.

Winding Tree plans to create an application around this idea to make it easier for a traveler to book their flight and hotel in a few clicks.
