The International Air Transport Association (IATA) 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 five airlines join Emirates Airline as IATA Travel Pass implementation pioneers.
The announcement, made on the sidelines of the 77th IATA Annual General Meeting being held in Boston, follows eleven months of extensive testing by 76 airlines.
“After months of testing, IATA Travel Pass is now entering the operational phase,” said Willie Walsh, IATA’s Director General.
“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.
