Lufthansa's partnership with Polygon is set to soar to new heights, blending the world of aviation and blockchain technology. In a collaborative effort between Lufthansa Innovation Hub and Polygon, passengers aboard Lufthansa flights will soon embark on an exciting journey of gamified air travel.
The carrier will allow travellers to collect NFTs, which can be used for rewards like lounge access and accumulating miles. Lufthansa will use the Polygon blockchain, a Proof-of-Stake network known for its speed and low fees. According to the Lufthansa Innovation Hub, the entire procedure will be available on the Uptrip smartphone application.
Through Uptrip, this innovative loyalty platform is intended to transform each flight into a collection of unique experiences by awarding travelers with NFT trading cards. These collections offer enticing rewards, including business lounge vouchers, free miles, and access to frequent traveler status.
Users can select from a vast array of cards featuring cities (such as Lisbon, New York, Rio de Janeiro), airplanes (like Airbus A320, Boeing 747, Embraer 190), and special experiences (such as flying on New Year's Eve or crossing the North Pole).
Users connect their wallets, like Metamask, to mint, transfer, and trade these Uptrip Trading Cards as NFTs. Since its soft launch, Uptrip has attracted over 20,000 registered users and issued more than 200,000 trading cards.
Lufthansa Group, including Lufthansa, Swiss International Air Lines, Austrian Airlines, and others, with over 38 million members in its Miles & More loyalty program, joins the growing list of major companies embracing the Polygon network for decentralized applications.
