NEW YORK (Reuters) – American Airlines and Swiss travel platform Winding Tree said on Tuesday they have formed a partnership that will enable corporate buyers to access the U.S. airline’s data on flights directly, without the need for intermediaries.
Winding Tree is an Ethereum-based decentralized travel marketplace launched in 2017 that says it aims to make travel cheaper for consumers and more profitable for suppliers.
Travel agents and corporate travel bookers currently get their data on flights and rooms from global distribution systems (GDS) such as Amadeus and Sabre, which employ real-time inventory technology.
Winding Tree’s platform will allow companies like airlines and hotel operators to publish available inventory directly to those customers.
