Towards a fully decentralized distribution for next generation of travel and tourism distribution

Project description

A better way for airlines to sell tickets online

Airlines use global distribution systems (GDSs) to sell tickets directly to consumers. It’s a computerised reservation network launched 30 years ago. GDS booking has increased worldwide over the past couple of years but it comes at a price (every GDS charges per transaction) and lacks flexibility to evolve with the market. The EU-funded Biztribution project will create a new automated and simple distribution model for the air travel and tourism sector. Based on blockchain distributed ledger technology, airlines will be able to regain control over their content and customers, creating more efficient operations and significantly reducing distribution costs by avoiding overheads and intermediaries.
