Etihad Airways, Jazeera Airways, Jetstar, Qantas, Qatar Airways and Royal Jordanian have announced that they will be implementing the IATA Travel Pass in a phased rollout across their networks.
The five carriers join Emirates Airline as IATA Travel Pass implementation pioneers.
IATA’s director general, Willie Walsh said that: “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.”
IATA Travel Pass is a mobile app that can receive and verify a range of COVID-19 test results and digital vaccines certificates. Currently vaccine certificates from 52 countries (representing the source of 56% of global air travel) can be managed using the app. This will increase to 74 countries, representing 85% of global traffic, by the end of November.
