Airlines close to launch travel pass

March 17, 2021

Around 80 to 90 countries could offer a ‘digital passport’ scheme being launched by an aviation industry grouping along with airlines to speed up air travel recovery.
The ‘Travel Pass’ initiative will allow passengers to have a digital passport verified with all their pre-travel test or vaccination details to meet the requirements at the end destination. They will also be able to share test and vaccination certificates with authorities and airlines to facilitate smoother processing at airports.
The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has engaged with authorities in many countries to fast-track this effort, seen as vital to turnaround the sinking fortunes of the airline industry.
The IATA-led initiative has the potential to pull the entire aviation industry out of its crisis state by offering a one-stop platform for all COVID-19-related requirements.
