  1. the Airline Challenge
  2. the Traveler Challenge
  3. the Supplier Challenge

The Airline Challenge is aimed at finding solutions that would increase the precision of airline operations, and decrease the number of errors that occur. The Traveler Challenge is designed to enhance the customer’s experience, by making flying less complex and more comfortable. The Supplier Challenge is an attempt to increase the transparency and efficiency of supply chains and maintenance.

The Blockchain Aviation Challenge begins with the participants submitting their ideas by the end of August 2018. Next, the chosen will be mentored and will prepare for the final pitch, which will take place in front of the Lufthansa Group's and SAP’s upper management.

Among the prizes listed are "access to Blockchain-as-a-Service from SAP in order to build or improve their MVP" for finalists and "office space for up to 3 months in the Berlin ecosystem"
