Delta and Alitalia to use AOKPass to verify passenger covid status

The world’s largest health and security risk services company, International SOS and the International Chamber of Commerce are announcing that their digital health certification app, ICC AOKPass, will be used to certify the COVID-19 status of individuals travelling on flights between Aeroporti di Roma and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. This will allow Delta Airlines and Alitalia to begin operating quarantine-free flights between the two European and American cities from mid-December, in a major step towards the resumption of international travel.

Developed in collaboration with International SOS and the ICC, the ICC AOKpass app uses blockchain technology to enable individuals to securely store digital verification of medical certificates. This includes the results of a PCR test taken 72 hours before departure and a rapid test taken in both Atlanta and Rome, to enable the quarantine-free travel route to operate safely.

Ivan Bassato, Executive Vice President of Operations, ADR (Aeroporti di Roma): “ADR has entered, with determination, a path based on a maximum safety airport and oriented towards proposing new safe and innovative travel protocols, first developed on a prototype basis on the Rome-Milan route and now extended for the first time in Europe to the United States. ICC AOKpass ensures enhanced security data-wise to those who rely on air travel, and the airports and airlines, servicing their needs”.
