Lufthansa’s Digital Hub Launches Software Unit to Help Others Sell Travel Better

Yilu, which launched in July but has not been disclosed until now, runs as an independent unit. Its first client is Eurowings, Lufthansa’s low-cost carrier brand. Already Yilu is powering new options on Eurowing’s mobile app to book ground transportation from the supplier MyTaxi, a Hamburg-based aggregator of taxi service worldwide. The company invented a way for MyTaxi’s content to become bookable on Eurowings’s app via a new API.
