The IATA Travel Pass will keep passengers in control of their data and facilitate the sharing of their test with airlines and authorities for travel. It will also make it convenient for passengers to manage their travel documents. 

 

Hosam Fouad, chief executive officer, Life Diagnostics, said:  “During the current global situation, digital transformation has played a significant role in many industries. And with the dynamically changing health requirements for travel, Life Diagnostics believes that the digital health passport solution will provide additional clarity and ease for travelers.

 

“We are proud to partner with Etihad Airways and IATA , so that together, we can provide  a globally unified approach to make travel easier once governments decide what regulations are required to cross borders in either direction.”
