Germany's Lufthansa airline is planning to soon let its flyers collect rewards in the form of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and engage with Web3. Lufthansa is rolling out a new loyalty programme, that will let flyers collect reward points in the form of NFTs trading cards. From business lounge vouchers, to free miles and frequent traveler statuses, these NFT trading cards offered by Lufthansa will unlock a plethora of facilities for the travelers. The name of this new loyalty programme has been decided as ‘Uptrip' and the NFTs that are part of this programme are based on the eco-friendly Polygon blockchain.
Lufthansa will allow eligible flyers to connect their digital wallets in order to mint, transfer, and trade these Uptrip NFT cards.
The NFT cards being offered are divided into different categories, including cities, aircrafts, as well as Specials. (...) “Web3 is in an early stage of development. Curiosity is high. But, we also encounter questions and hesitation – which is where Uptrip hits a nerve. We make it possible for people to access this new technology,” a report by Zycrypto quoted Kristian Weymar, Director of New Business Lufthansa Innovation Hub as saying.
