One of the largest European airline group Air France-KLM has recently announced a partnership with Swiss blockchain startup Winding Tree to develop a travel platform based on blockchain technology. Basically, Winding Tree is the developer of a decentralized, public, B2B blockchain marketplace for the air travel space.
As explained in the official press release, the aim of this new agreement is to provide a more advantageous travel offer for customers via Blockchain technology – which is more profitable for suppliers, in particular by reducing the number of intermediaries. With the Winding Tree’s B2B platform, users, and in particular companies and startups, will benefit from a wide range of offers (flights, hotels etc.) and will be able to offer travel solutions which are adapted to their customers’ needs.
