Air France Looks To The Blockchain To Improve Service

During a webinar that included Microsoft and Ramco Aviation, Air France’s Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) division revealed its interest in bringing blockchain technology to its workflow.

This means all of the services for flight repairs would go through a digital ledger on which everyone involved would have faster access. Presently, this sector of Air France mostly sticks to paper, so making the transition to a digital interface could prove difficult. Nonetheless, the airline’s director of innovation of the KLM business unit, James Kornberg, plans to present all of the improvements the MRO team will gain using these digital systems.

German airline Lufthansa wants to make blockchain a common technology in the aircraft industry. The company launched the Blockchain for Aviation initiative to bring together software developers and aircraft companies to make it a reality. The initiative also offers a one-day course to teach the basics of using a blockchain.
