KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, the flagship global airline, is applying blockchain technology to facilitate intercompany settlements process with its subsidiaries, as blockchain technology increasingly gains traction in the airline industry.

It has been reported that part of one of the world’s biggest airlines, Air France-KLM, Royal Dutch Airlines has partnered with Dutch software startup Unchain.io in order to explore the potential benefits of blockchain technology for its business and internal processes.

On February 25, the firm announced that after close collaboration, Unchain provided KLM Royal Dutch Airlines with a strategic finance application based on blockchain technology developed by major global enterprise software firm R3.

However, the solution intends to simplify KLM’s accounting process and settlements by implementing R3’s Corda, an open-source enterprise blockchain platform that is designed to record, manage and synchronize data.
