​The airline industry is becoming more data-driven and that is in response to a world with multi-players, multi-source channels, where the customers have the power of choice and demand for transparency of their choices. In a parallel track to satisfying customer demands, the industry is always looking for ways to optimize its processes by seeking new challenges and adopting innovative technologies such as Blockchain, which will redefine the relationship between multiple players in the industry.
