Six more airlines implement IATA Travel Pass


The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has announced that Etihad Airways, Jazeera Airways, Jetstar, Qantas, Qatar Airways and Royal Jordanian, will implement IATA Travel Pass in a phased rollout across the airlines’ networks.

These six airlines join Emirates airline as IATA Travel Pass implementation pioneers.

The announcement, made on the sidelines of the 77th IATA annual general meeting held in Boston, follows 11 months of extensive testing by 76 airlines.

IATA Director General Willie Walsh said: “After months of testing, IATA Travel Pass is now entering the operational phase. The app has proven itself to be an effective tool to manage the complex mess of travel health credentials that governments require.

“And it’s a great vote of confidence that some of the world’s best known airline brands will be making it available to their customers over the coming months.”

The app offers a safe and secure way for travelers to check the requirements for their journey, receive test results and scan their vaccine certificates, verify that these meet the destination and transit requirements and share these effortlessly with health officials and airlines prior to departure.

This will avoid queuing and congestion for document checks—to the benefit of travelers, airlines, airports and governments.

IATA Travel Pass is a mobile app that can receive and verify a range of Covid-19 test results and digital vaccine certificates. Currently vaccine certificates from 52 countries (representing the source of 56 per cent of global air travel) can be managed using the app. This will increase to 74 countries, representing 85 per cent of global traffic, by the end of November.
