IATA Travel Pass is a mobile app that helps travellers to store and manage their verified certifications for COVID-19 tests or vaccines. It provides governments with the means to verify the authenticity of tests or vaccinations and the identity of those presenting their certificates and gives airlines the ability to provide accurate information to their passengers on test requirements and verify that a passenger meets the requirements for travel.

 

The digital solution will allow travellers to store their passport, Covid vaccinations and negative test results in one place to prove they meet travel requirements. All personal data is secure. The Travel Pass will be integrated into the Jazeera App to make the system convenient.

 

Travel Pass has been trialled by many airlines already, including Emirates Airline, Etihad Airways, Qatar Airways, Singapore Airlines, British Airways, Swiss, and Virgin Atlantic. From 1 May, passengers travelling to Singapore have been able to use the pass as part of an ongoing collaboration between the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) and IATA. It is the first country where government, airline and IATA are working together on one system for opening up travel. Travel Pass is expected to be adopted as the gold standard around the world to enable the free and safe movement of travellers.

 

Rohit Ramachandran, CEO Jazeera Airways said, “We are pleased to be working with IATA on this significant technological development for international air travel. It is important for Kuwait that we are part of this global solution to enable citizens and residents to travel safely.’’

 

Kamil Al Awadhi, IATA Regional VP, Africa and the Middle East said, “Travel Pass has been successfully tested with a number of airlines and Jazeera will be the first low-cost airline in the region to join the development and roll-out. We will support them in every way we can to implement it quickly for the airline and its passengers.”
