WebJet Blockchain project for travel bookings

Microsoft is working on the newest Webjet Blockchain project to allow users booking travels through the distributed ledger.

Microsoft, in fact, is testing a blockchain proof-of-concept developed together with the Australian travel agency called Webjet for a pilot that will be ready during this year.

During a speech given at the CoinDesk’s annual conference titled Construct 2017, Cale Teeter and Eric Maino, or Microsoft senior software development engineer and technical architect, commented that they think that the project, which looking for make travel bookings  easier by using a blockchain-based system, will reach its development status during the next few months.

“Webjet wanted to see, instead of everyone running their own proprietary systems, a system that connects companies they own. They’ve been running their real data through it and they’ve been finding interest discrepancies in the business, and they’re hoping to expand it out,” said Maino.

Revealed in November, the Webjet managing director John Guscic explained that the online booking system has become apt to be developed thanks to the several systems used for its business projects including the hotel room wholesaling.

“Between five and 10% of bookings can be impacted or, in other words, up to $10bn-worth of transactions,” Guscic explained in a previous statement.
