German airline Hahn Air claims to be the first airline company to issue tickets on a blockchain, through a partnership with Winding Tree.
German airline Hahn Air, which offers scheduled and charter flights within Europe, announced on Monday it has issued the first airline tickets enabled by blockchain technology, in partnership with Winding Tree, an open-source travel distribution platform.
Hahn Air, a German company, became the first airline to release blockchain tickets. Blockchain ticketing is made possible by Hahn Air’s collaboration with Winding Tree, a decentralized platform for the travel industry. Frederick Nowotny, Sales Manager at Hahn Air, Maksim Izmaylov, Founder of Winding Tree, and Davide Montali, IT Director of Winding Tree, were the first passengers to use blockchain tickets.
Commenting on the launch of this feature, Frederick Novotny said that the company’s goal is to “explore the opportunities that this technology provides to the travel industry, even if its widespread adoption is still a matter of the future”.
Blockchain life in 2019 and digital currencies have been steadily entering the tourism industry in recent years. Earlier in November Alternative Airlines, a UK-based travel company, entered into a partnership agreement with Utrust’ cryptocurrency service to simplify cryptocurrency payments, including BTC, Ether (ETH), Dash, DigiByte (DGB) and Utrust UTK. tokens.
At the end of October, startup blockchain Zamna raised $5 million to automate security controls at airports using blockchain and biometrics technology. Zamna’s clients include the International Airlines Group, Emirates Airlines and the General Directorate for Residences and Foreigners of the United Arab Emirates.
