German airline Lufthansa has joined forces with Swiss startup Winding Tree to create a blockchain platform to make traveling easier.

The partnership is a win-win for both companies. Lufthansa benefits by accessing new technology to enable passengers a smoother flight. On the Winding Tree front, it has the opportunity to directly work with airline companies to properly ingratiate their blockchain technology. In the blockchain,  flight information gets stored and then shared to with other companies, such as hotels, who then send available deals to the customer. Winding Tree effectively eliminates a traveler’s need to go to a third party website, such as Expedia or Travelocity, to book a hotel.

Winding Tree plans to create an application to make booking a flight and hotel as simple as clicking a button.
