In the airport industry, potential applications for blockchain include security and identification, flight data management, safety and maintenance, baggage and cargo tracking, regulatory compliance, and more. Promising blockchain applications specific to COVID-19 include passenger health verification and contact tracing, facilitating a contactless passenger experience, and tracking the movement of healthcare supplies and pharmaceuticals (including vaccines) from origin to final destination.
The TRB Airport Cooperative Research Program's Conference Proceedings on the Web 28: Introduction to Blockchain and Airport Operations in a COVID-19 Environment brings together conference proceedings of representatives from the airport sector and the blockchain industry along with other experts engaged in airport operations, information technology, and blockchain.
